I’m hoping you can help me with information about this beautiful Antique Inlaid Table. I have no idea where it was made. It belonged to my friend’s grandparents who were European Jews that emigrated to the U.S. in the 1920’s and 1930’s from Husiatyn, Poland (now part of the Ukraine). This was used in their living room as an end table from as far back as he can remember, which would be the early 1950’s. I haven’t noticed any nails used on it, the only metal (I think) being small round dots on the bottom of the feet, to be used like a glider I imagine.
AW says: That’s a French Provincial Style Table, circa 1920s, so technically it would be Provincial Revival. Small stands and tables are among the most easy pieces of furniture to sell within their price range. I’m sure it’s Walnut judging by the pictures.
Thanks so much for your interest and continued support.

In most cases, I believe it would be beneficial for your to give the prospective buyer a link to this page, and to bookmark it via your favorite bookmarking service.
Care and storage tips: I’d only lightly dust something like this. Never polish the top, if liquids get in the marquetry work it could lift. Keep out of strong sunlight for long periods of time.
