I have purchased this table, because I loved it. I have been trying to find out what it is, and what era it belongs to? by the way all the metal work is solid brass and the table is very heavy

Hello maxtschalabi,

Your table could be an antique or it could be a new reproduction coming out of China or the Philippines. An antique dealer would be able to provide potential clues for you and answer some of the questions you have about it. Regardless, it has been created to imitate the neoclassic style, which is evident in the marquetry wood top and the general shape of the table. The brass 'ormolu' also provides several neoclassical motifs; the gadrooning on the table apron, the caryatid legs, the floral swags and the sphinz/griffin with scrolls.

Best of luck!

Doubtful an antique would be in that good of shape. Very likely a reproduction. Look at the bottom of the drawer to see if it has any markings that might help determine it's provinence.

HI -- I pretty sure it's not an antique or even old for that matter . Looks the same as the furniture my east Indian friends have . So I think it is furniture that is made in India .

It lookssss like the real deal to me from your pictures. I am going to take a guess at French Empire, middle 1800’s. Research that era and see if you can find something similar. Notice the swags and the brass mounts on the sides. The stretcher even has that brass vessel.



Hopefully, an expert will chime in with an opinion. If it is authentic, you have an unbelievable piece.

I hope you do, too. Sometimes you have a find.

For years, my grandfather had this bowl in his workshop…some kind of pottery, brownish, glazed with these yellow mustard squiggles. He threw nails and screws and his tobacco can in there, and surprisingly, it was never damaged. When I was cleaning out his house, I had an auctioneer come to see if there was anything of value. He took the brown dish, along with some other pieces. Do you know that the dish, called ‘slip ware”, fetched $2800.00 at auction?

Keep us posted and good luck.
