This is Gettysburg Table, not sure why they named them this but, the furniture companies did. It dates to the early 1900's. Most people call them Lamp tables, they would have been in a parlor or library, usually in front of a window, they held a large lamp. Later they started calling these Radio Tables, because people would put their radios on them, in the evenings everyone would gather around the radio to listen to the shows. They called them Soap operas, that name started because soap companies sponsored the shows. . This table is valued at $500.00-600.00.

It was a pleasure working for you.

Thanks so much for the history lesson, Glenda. I'm so glad to know these historical tidbits.

You are very welcome, this is what I used to do when I had my antique shop, I would buy Antique Books, and read them when I was not busy! I learned a lot in those 12 years! Of course I have been in this business since I was a teenager, buying old stuff, then it moved onto buying and selling, appraisal. I am 65 so I have been doing this as long as I can remember.

I hope you have a great day
