Description

32" H 35" W 48" D Oak Library Table purchased at auction in MInnesota in the 1960's. Has a metal number plate with a number on it. Made mostly with interlocking wood pieces and wooden dowels. Modern reinforcements have been made to the underneath area where the legs meet the top. It's in good, not perfect condition. Solid piece though. Normal wear and tear with a small area of damage to the table top where it is bubbling up.

Provenance

My mother bought this at an informal auction in Minnesota where they were selling all the Library furniture

What does this mean?

Hi Heidi,

Thank you for contacting Mearto with your appraisal inquiry.
