I'm probably going to hang this as a picture, but it is actually a card table. Any idea how old it is and who made it?
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.SteveD(TX) said: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.
