I have bought a...

I have bought a small table with a drawer which I think is used for silver cutlery - it has a reddish wood and is lined with red velvet - small slender cabriolet legs - Victorian I think - any clues?

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?

I have bought a small table with drawer for cutlery - it has balliol legs - very dainty and is made of a red wood - may be mahogany - have you any ideas?
