Customer Question

We inherited a JOHN STUART INC drop leaf table. Think it is a minimum of 60 years old. Solid Walnut (I think) in Cherry Stain. It stores small and has 4 leaves that are in a wood storage case (original)
The legs are tapered with decorative vertical lines carved into the wood. It has #0596 struck into the top support. Wash leaf has #16 struck on the side and the leafs are also struck with #1-4 on each leaf consecutively to show their position.
The drops are 6" each. They are held out with a wood block approximately 1"X1"x5". The pull is a round brass knob. The table has a stationary panel on each end that U.S. 10" deep. Meach leaf is 13 1"/2" deep. The table becomes at its largest size 86"x38 1/4 and has 6 legs.
I have pics I can send. Please advise me how I find the true age and value.
