    When we moved house the previous owner left loads of furniture which we are trying to get rid of. Amongst them were these 2 gorgeous tables, can anyone tell me anything about them? What type of wood, what era and if they are worth anything? There are a few similar on ebay going for a few hundred so wanted to check!!

    They are in brilliant condition, obviously been well looked after. But they certainly dont seem the thing to be made nowadays. They look well made, a lot of hard work has gone into them

    I don't really know much about them, but my nan brought one very similar once and all I know is that it cost her a fortune. I hope you can find some one that knows something about them :)

    There's a special name for tables like that but i'll be b***red if i can remember what it is.

    Why on earth would they leave them? Was it deliberate or a mistake?

    Have you got any antiques shops in your area that you can enquire about them with? & then stick 'em on ebay cos you may get a better price. Although it sounds like 3 red dogs wants first dibs.
     
  7. They look to me to be european! not old , and not solid! almost certainly veneer! and the inlay is NOT inlay! - maybe around 1990-2000! not worth a lot and would not have cost a great deal when new!

    hope I have not upset anyone!!! I could be wrong!!! but don't think so!

    you can have it! dunno how much to ask though im so confused. The previous owners of our house passed away and left almost everything herefor £500. They are gorgeous but not my style! Might put them on ebay see how much interest they get:confused:

    I have to agree with DT here, if it had of been solid wood that would of been a good start and the inlay needs to be different pieces of wood put in seperately by hand, also check how the stand is put together with the top of the table, if it has screws in it then not worth much , nice tables but maybe get someone in the know to give them the once over if not sure.

    i would estimate the dates of around the 1980's for the bottom table and perhaps a littler earlier for the top one. Reproductions.

    If you have a local auction room take them along and see what they say. The tables don't look all that old to me - the inlay is too brightly coloured, it would have faded with age even if they were kept out of sunlight. Hope you get a good price for them anyway :)
