Customer Question

Hi, My mom has some capo di monte pieces of my grandmothers. How can I tell if they are worth keeping or not?Also she has two end tables and a coffee table with a marble top that was made in Italy. How do I know if it is worth anything or if I should just give it away to a family member?Thanks.

Hi,

Is there a Capodimonte mark on this and what is the approximate height?

there is a mark. I cant recall which one as I know there are different marks. It is approximately 12 to 14 inches high.

This is the mark on the bottom of the marble table

Thanks. I forgot to mention that the side tables have iron castor wheels.
Expert:  Nora replied 5 months ago.

Thank you for the image. Do the side tables have a drawer and is there a tag or label on the inside? ~Nora

Customer: replied 5 months ago.
I have one that has a drawer and 2 side tables that do not. I will look on the inside. There is hand written numbers on the bottom of the wood. I have attached pictures of the one table with the drawers and a picture of the side table without the drawers. there is a stamp and hand written numbers underneath.

Hi,

Thank you for the images.

Side table pair can sell for up to $300 for the two together and the one with 2 drawers can sell for $175 - $200 on today's market. The Capodimonte Cherub clock can sell for $100 - $200 at auction. You can, however, ask any price you please on an item you own, the key factor is finding a buyer at your asking price.

Here is the label that is on the tables. There is also a round one. It looks as though they are all Mahogany.
