It looks like some kind of Shaker table. You will have to look under, behind or in the drawers for some kind of markings

It has Shaker lines. Without markings it is a challenge, but not impossible to know the exact origination. Shaker has a long history


There are true Shaker pieces and Shaker style which can include older pieces and newer pieces designed to look old.

If you are so inclined, Google images is an amazing way to match and item to a post to learn more. Just type in a description and scroll through the selections.

You can glean info from the piece itself by examining it carefully even if there are no if it is real wood or partical board or plywood drawer. Tells you about the overall quality

These sites have some good information to guide you on things to look for on the piece:

If you can't find an exact match, talk to an antique or vintage store dealer to learn more about it. If you ask because of insurability, you will learn more than if you are asking to sell.


Hope this helps get you started to learn more about the table!

Your end/side table has some resemblance to Shaker but I do not believe they ever put any curlicues as your table has on legs under table top.

  • I do not believe the Shaker style ever had pie crust on the top but I could be wrong about that.
  • You should try and find any brand markings on your table as that will give someone a way to research. Remove drawers and look inside and under drawers, back and under table.
  • You might be able to find out more if you ask for an appraisal. Here is a site that has some ads for free appraisals and sometimes you can learn a lot from one of these.

  • Here are some examples of true Shaker style tables.
