Any idea what we have here? Cannot find any info on this pie crust table and can't find any matching images. Any idea of its value?
This Pie Crust table, is truly a one of a kind. I would suggest taking a the picture to a local furniture/ antique store for more history. the type of wood used is also a big factor in the pricing. Online these types of tables are running $100's to $1000 depending on maker brand, wood, etc. - www.etsy.com/
Are there any marks on the underside? It looks like someone who was pretty talented refreshed a Brandt (maybe) post 1950s pie crust table and rolled it up with an interesting paint job. This one is similar...I can not get a good look at the base of yours content://com.android.chrome.FileProvider/images/screenshot/16475580118101929004842.jpg
It is challenging to figure this out by one photo.
Can you tell if there are brush marks on the silver? That would confirm my suspecion.
I think the black or dark color is a stain so it may not have brush marks but may have uneven pigment that would also confirm it was a redo.ll
Are the bottoms of the feet silver? If they are brass color that would confirm you have a makeover.
As to value, if it is a one of a kind, start as high as you want and take best offer. Furniture values are regional so best to check around with a few antique shops in your town to see what pie crust tables fetch. Some places original and pristine can fetch into the low $1000s. Other towns the low $20.
Redos usually decrease values, however if that is what you have, it is an interesting look and could actually increase value. Post back how it goes!
Ahh...this is a fairly new piece! Reproduction of the old style. The qc... quality check and made in China are the delineators. My guess is 1-15 years old. Values, as I said earlier are regional for newer, vintage, or antiques.

I bought this Pie Crust table today. I can't find any markings anywhere on it. The seller said it was her late husband's father's. I would like to know it's value, how old it is and who might have made it?
The top is 30 inches across. The top appears to be made of 4 pieces of wood. Each piece is 1/4 of a pie and point into the center of the table top like pizza slices. The bottom of the top is made of 5 pieces of wood to look like 1 solid board. The hinges look rather modern to me. I know nothing about inspecting furniture, but it appears to be untampered with. The finish looks old and untouched from cleaning, staining, etc.
Thank you for your assistance.
I do not believe you have a 'brand' name table.
The following information is my personal opinion so please feel free to ignore it.
You stated the seller said, "The seller said it was her late husband's father's". This may be true and it's possible he purchased this table in the same condition as it was sold to you.
The first thing that raises a 'red flag' are the new hinges on the underside of the table. These almost look like they were just purchased at a hardware store. No vintage table would have such hinges. Even if hinges had to be replaced, they would usually be replaced with vintage hinges. I'm not sure hinges have to be replaced very often.
The second 'red flag' is the block of wood that attaches the leg block to the tabletop.
This appears to be a scrap of wood cut to fit the pieces of the leg block. The tops of the leg block appear to have been glued to this scrap of wood and the hinges attached to the wood block are fastened to the tabletop so it appears to be a tilt-top pie crust table.
The vintage leg block could have been from any type of vintage table but does not belong with this tabletop.
I hope you understand that I'm only making comments on what I can see in the pictures and you, as well as other members may not see this at all.
