People are asking $400 all the way to $2000 for tables like this. Now keep in mind the asking price is not the true value of this table. The only time you can find out how much the table is actually worth is when one is sold. Currently I am not finding this exact table that has sold online.

The value of this table is also determined by the area where you live. In some areas the table will sell for a lot higher price than in other areas. Also considering the table has a mark on it will lower the overall value of the item.

Your table is modern--not an antique. Not sure the year. Conant furniture was made to be timeless so sometimes it is hard to tell the exact dates if you were not the original owner and have the purchase receipt.

It does have unusual feet which are a style maybe 1950s ish. I am still trying to figure that out as today is the first I have ever seen those kind of feet on a Conant--I know now they exist--because I found this set (see link below) that seem to match--but they are different--this brand's table legs and lines were typically very sleek and streamlined--and these are a bit chunky and odd for the Conant brand--no offense on that comment--just not his usual style....which has me intrigued!

Is it signed?

I think I found your exact table? With a full set of chairs, this set 2016 for $314:

If this is your table then you may fetch $100 or less or if you just have the table (and in today's market). Furniture sales are regional so the actual value you can get for it will be very dependent on where you located and the supply and demand and the fact that yours has some damage to it. Sadly even a little damage to furniture lends to the devaluing.

I will continue to research and see if I can learn any more about this particular leg style as it relates to Conant. Many of this brand's pieces are quite valuable and that this set is not makes me want to dig deeper as to why!

If I learn more I will post back!! Thanks for sharing!

Perhaps this museum can help:

They have a large Russel Wright exhibit, he was one of the most famous furniture designers at Contant Ball (he passed in 1976).

You said it is not signed, but they may be able to tell you if was attributed to him or not and the year if it was.

I am really looking forward to hearing what you learn!!

Thanks again!!

I feel sure you know that right now would be the worst time in our history to try and sell furniture. No one knows how long it will take for this to be over and our country to return to some type of normalcy.

There are still affluent people who may purchase items like this but most furniture has always been a slow seller and under the present conditions no one could expect it to be better.

This table and chairs listed as sold is similar to yours but this one has 2 leaves and has the drop on each end where your table has no leaves and has drops on the long side.

There is a table that I believe is exactly like yours (you do not give dimensions of your table) listed for sale on eBay for $2,160 which is a pretty high price but you might want to place a watch on this table to see if it sells.

It seems that many people think all furniture with the Conant Ball name is high value but, in truth, the most valuable pieces are from the Russel Wright collection and this name is clearly marked on that collection.

Your table is just from Conant Ball furniture company and was probably made in the 50/60's.
There is not a lot of history about Conant Ball company by itself but plenty about Russel Wright.

Here is an article about the company but not enough to date their pieces.

When you decide to sell, I would suggest trying to find a furniture repair person that might be able to help you 'work out' the spot on the table.
