Customer: replied 10 months ago.
on the bottom there is a circular logo that is etched into the wood it says imperial tables--next line grand then a crown then rapids, next line says imperial table co, next to this circle is the #29 below is the # 185, in ? crayon on bottom it says 2013 over 185 and in ?chalk is the #8 just randomly on bottom, also the photo I found on line is a bit different from ours

Hi,

Could you post a photo of the mark on the bottom?

Thanks,

Wayne

Here are shots of the bottom of the table.

Hi,

The mark on the bottom is consistent with the early 1900s. Your table's finish is rough. In it's current condition this would sell for $100-150 at auction and on the secondhand market, refinished would retail for $350.

Thanks,

Wayne
