Please add a value if possible

Hi. I can definitely help with a value, but I can't tell you who made it. Nothing specific turns up on the Napier name. Given the way that's written on the marble, that's probably the artisan/company that cut the marble slab. It's not uncommon to find these old furniture pieces marked with notations and signatures to indicate who sold the slab. Furniture companies would often farm out the marble work. It doesn't tell you who made the furniture though. If you're lucky sometimes the furniture will be stamped with the maker, but most often (as with yours), there's no mark to indicate the furniture maker.

.

I can tell you about the style, age and value though.

Please provide me the additional info as am determining if I want to buy it to put in my antique shop.

Hi. I can do that.

.

It's a very cool table. It's an American Victorian Renaissance Revival marble top table. It's a round parlor table that should date to the late 19th century. I found a handful of a similar style that were attributed to ***** ***** (Brooks Bros) out of New York. Brooks is a very highly sought after Victorian furniture maker. He made a number of Renaissance revival pieces throughout the mid and later part of the 19th century. Here's some work attributed to him:

.

You can definitely see a similarity in style. Without it being marked, I can't say for sure, but I would definitely say it's heavily influenced by Brooks' work.

.

The wood looks like walnut to me. It looks like a American Renaissance Revival carved walnut Marble top table. With has a wide carved apron with drop finial decorations. It has four scrolled legs pulled into a sort of pedestal design with finial accents. It has a quadped base with ring turned tapered style feet. It's a little hard to see, but these usually sat on casters as well.

.

It looks to be in excellent condition. Given the quality, a piece like that is worth about $1500 to $1750 on the high side in your higher end shops.

.

If you have any questions, please let me know.

.
