Customer Question

we have an ormolu decorated 30" tall table with 3 turned legs with fluting. The top is almost round but shaped like three circles, has sunken tin(?) oval bins with flat bottoms and each is circled on table top by bronzish lace cut trim standing on edge. the top is 5" deep and banded by marquetry of light wood in black (almost shoe polish color). The legs have vertical ormolu trims in each flute. there is a lower shelf with tiny ormolu beading around. there are castings on each leg where they are attached to the side of the 5" panels and one on the table top above each leg. Also bands of ormolu around each leg. we just acquired this from friends whose parents traveled the world. it is not in top condition, but it is sturdy. there has been a repair where the bottom plywood of the upper part has been renailed in a few spots. old tiny round brass colored nail heads are still in unrepaired section. my research says 18th century, louis XV, but the closest I've come is a "1st Dibs" company table that has different legs. is this valuable?
