Looks to be English or at least from the UK. Probably between 50 and 70 years old. I would surmise that it came here in one of the many thousands of containers that are shipped from exporters every year to auction houses and large antique dealers across the U.S.
Well, that side of my family is from England, but they came over in the late 1800's. I suppose they could have bought it here, though (or maybe a relative shipped it to them as a present...that would make it even more interesting to me). I happened upon this table as I was rummaging around in the house where my great aunt lived. She died a couple of weeks ago at the age of 91 and she lived in that house her entire life. My grandma was born there too. My great grandparents bought the house in 1904, I believe.
Hubby and I are very interested in buying the house. It has 102 acres with it. However, the only way we'll be able to afford the whole thing is if the men in the family take pity on us and sell it to us cheap just to keep it in the family.
