Customer Question
I have a dining...

I have a dining room table that my mother purchased from the former home owner in 1960. We are moving out soon and I need a value because my brother wants it. I have photos I can upload.

Expert's Assistant: I always love having an appraiser look at my stuff. Sometimes its turned out to be surprisingly valuable. Tell us what else you do know and the Antiques Appraiser will be able to better assist you.

It would be easier to show you pictures... it's 48" x 60", legs are claw foot at base with a floral leaf at the top. The table top itself has 1" scallops all the way around. The frame looks like oak, but the top doesn't.

Expert's Assistant: Is there anything else the Antiques Appraiser should be aware of?

It can hold up to three leaves, which I have. There's a grease pencil marking on the underside that says 1950, but no manufacture's stamp.
