Customer Question
Do you have an idea...
Do you have an idea for the value of a game table owned by my ancestor, Noah Webster ? His address and name are written on the underside by the furniture maker. It was probably refinished at some point in time but otherwise is in excellent condition. I have to split the value with my sibling.

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.
