This is a set of carved rosewood Japanese nesting tables from the 1920's and a

tea service table (six stools usually fit like a puzzle under the table, though you did not show those)

from the same era. The nesting tables have a value of $400 for the set and the tea table with stools

has a value of $500 to $650 retail.

Some sites that I recommend are,,,,, Lushpad,, and
You can also go to or and search their directory for an auction house near you and consign to them.
To finish, I will need you to click the five stars at the top of your screen and hit the submit button, thanks!
