I have a unique little table I'd like to know something

This answer was rated:

I have a unique little table I'd like to know something about. It is 12" high, 36" diameter, has carved wood legs, which are separate and shoved into slots on the underside of the table. One of the legs is missing. It is fairly lightweight. There is a chip on the top. No marking at all! Can you tell me anything about it? Also value?


You might remember to put " For Glenda " incase I stepped away at some time.


This is a Chinese Table, from around 1940-50. Are you wanting to sell it as is, with the missing leg?

it's supposed to have 5 legs. The one is missing but it stands well without it. Thanks


This is your answer, please read entirely.

The Chinese Table, as is has ( missing leg ) an estimated value on the current market for an average of $200.00-250.00 if sold at an auction(a local auction ) it would sell for a little less,at around $150.00-175.00, if this were sold in a High End Antique Shop in a larger city it would sell for $250.00 and up depending on the condition. If I were selling it I would list it for $200.00
Keep in mind that not all estimated values are obtained, your geographic area plays a big role in what prices can be obtained. If you plan on selling this I would list this for sell on the internet where it will have the largest shopping market. There are some great sites you can sell from.
You can sell on Etsy, which is a great place to sell from, you list Vintage Items, they can stay until they sell. Much like having a little store online. There is also Rubylane, which is a more upscale site where people sell more expensive items. There is also Tias and GoAntiques, which is on the same scale of Rubylane. There is Amazon Market Place, and of course Ebay. You can also sell on Charish, where you consign items. All of these sites get you a lot of World Wide exposure and bring the best traffic. They are all great! All sites can be sold from with pick up only option.
If you sell to a dealer, antique shop or resell shop you can expect to get about 30-40% of what it is worth since they have to resell the item.
Please ask any question you might have about your answer before rating this.

Another question regarding this table please: what would this table be used for? Since it is only 12" high, it seems its purpose would be limited.

The Asian use these tables to eat off of, they mainly eat sitting on the floor, they would use large cushions around the table to sit on.
