Antique tables

Acquired from

For sale

These tables are new to me and I am considering refinishing them. However, I need to check the value (or lack of) prior to doing any work/damage....The smaller one is badly sun damaged on one side and the larger Bombe shaped one has a cracked piece of granite on top. Some veneer is either cracked or lifting or both. The tables are both quite dry and in need of feeding. I can only do that if I remove the finish, but I hesitate doing so. All of the metal corner guards are present and are gorgeous. Help! Both tables are photographed here.


Purchased locally from a family that is moving out of State. She had purchased them from Ebay.
