We have an old solid dark walnut poker table that needs refinishing

Customer Question

We have an old solid dark walnut poker table that needs refinishing and are wondering how much it might be worth and what we should spend on having it done. We intend to keep the table. The current finish was a professional polyester job done in the fifties.

Hello, In order for me to properly assess what you have I will need to see images. If you had already attached images to your initial posting, they are not showing for me here on my end. Please send the photos at your convenience. There is not an extra charge to provide more pictures here. ~Nora

Hello, Antique poker tables sell for an average of $600 - $900 and some exceptional, ornate tables sell for up to $2000. The price of restoration would really depend on the extent of any damage, work to be done and the price charged by the individual restorer.
