Good morning, Brad,
Thank you for contacting Mearto with your appraisal inquiry. Your dating of this table is correct - I would say circa 1875-1900.
It's a very handsome and useful table and appears to be in very good condition. This style is not particularly popular but the fact that you have leaves and it can convert will make it more appealing on the auction market, should you elect to sell it. A few recent sales of similar table follow, to give you an idea of the market for this. I think your table compares favorably.
Based on the photographs and information provided, and subject to examination, you have a:
Late Victorian mahogany extending pedestal dining table,
English or American, circa 1875-1900
30 inches high, diameter closed 56 inches (with three later customized 20-inch leaves); top when extended: 56 by 116 inches
PROVENANCE: acquired from a newspaper advertisement circa 1980s
CONDITION: client represents table to be in excellent condition. Mahogany leaves are not original to the table but were customized circa 1980s.
$500-800 (represents a fair-market value for auction purposes; retail or asking price may vary).
