Customer Question

I am also selling this blanket roll table. It is walnut, has a small crack 2" crack at the top. It does not affect it opening or closing. Other than that it is in beautiful shape. What would I get if I sold it at auction or just listed it myself. I bought this in 1997 at auction from Neil's in New Orleans for my bed and breakfast.

Hi,

I am still searching for comparables on this one for you; thank you for the request.

It is rather unique. My home was in Southern Living 3 times and at one time they were interested in making a reproduction of this piece.
Expert:  Nora replied 10 months ago.

Hello,

I agree that it is a rather unique and fine piece of furniture. You have lovely items and certainly the taste worthy of being featured in Southern Living, a favorite publication of mine! The extent of value will really depend on whether this is an American or English piece, do you have an idea of such?

I believe it to be American. I purchased this piece and an 1820's butlers desk at the same time. Both were from Weymouth Hall in Natchez, MS. My husband and I are downsizing and moving to a condo. I can only keep a few pieces. 😢. My next question and I am finished for the night is about the value of the butlers desk. It is flame mahogany and in beautiful condition.
