Hi! This is Robert here, thanks for asking me about this magnificent table, I would be happy to help. It's a particularly fine example of Victorian "historical revival" furniture, in this case, a Renaissance or baroque style with crossover elements of classical ornament.It would be described as a monumental highly carved oak or walnut refectory table, circa last quarter 19th century, in the Italian Renaissance style, the rectangular top with a bead-and-reel edge, and carved Tudor rose on the frieze, on a trestle base having massive carved scrolled and paw footed supports flanking a pair of Ionic columns, fluted and of square section, and raised on a conforming H-form stretcher plinth. If you were to see this table for sale in an antique store in New York it would have a full retail price of about $12,000. This is also the replacement value for insurance purposes.If it were consigned for sale at a top antique auction house it would fetch in the range of $4000 - $6000.I do hope this helps!Best wishes,Robert PS.
