Customer Question
Greetings! I have obtained...
Greetings! I have obtained a gate leg table which has a tag underneath which reads, "Oak Gateleg table from Eng. 1690's." This table has 4 gated legs and could easily seat 8. It's patina is almost black. The table top is slightly oval. It's the most beautiful thing I've ever seen and I have no idea how to care for it or what to do next. One I got it safely in the house, we just walk around cooing at it. Frightened to move it further as it has a few splits at the feet. I would suppose having it appraised would be the next step. Would anyone be interested in seeing pictures?
Thank you very much,

I have some concerns about the construction, wood, and finish being from the late 17th or even early 18th century.
However, I'm not so convinced that I want to make that statement. I'm going to re-open this question so it can be seen by all the other appraisers.
Sincerely,
Jennifer
