Customer Question
I HAVE AN 18TH...

I HAVE AN 18TH C ENGLISH CHEESE TABLE (OR FRENCH). I USED IT FOR MY FAMILY MEALS FOR 27 YEARS. IT SEATS 10, HAS A VERY LOW APRON, AND IS MADE OF PINE, I THINK! IN MY PRESENT (DOWNSIZED) HOME, I JUST HAVE NO ROOM FOR IT. DO YOU KNOW HOW I COULD SELL IT OR HAVE IT APPRAISED? THANKS. LINDA

Expert's Assistant: I always love having an appraiser look at my stuff. Sometimes its turned out to be surprisingly valuable. Is there anything else important you think the Antiques Appraiser should know?

THE TOP OF THE TABLE HAS A SPLIT IN IT! WHEN I BROUGHT IT HOME, HE SAID, 'THAT HAS A SPLIT IN IT!' I TOLD HIM I HAD PAID EXTRA FOR THAT SPLIT!!! IT HAS SOME EXPOSED NAILS (AUTHENTIC), NO DRAWERS, NOTHING BUT 4 LEGS. THE PLANKS ON THE TOP ARE 13", 15", QNE 11.5". 7'1"L X 40"W. I'VE SEEN THESE TABLES APPRAISED FOR OVER $14K, COULD MINE BE THAT VALUABLE?
