These are my Chinese nesting tables that I bought from an estate sale about 7 years ago. They have onyx inlays of 4 different original scenes. The smallest table has a small pull out drawer in front. They have glass tops that are inset into the individual tables. I believe they were made in the early 20th century. My favorite things about them are the detailed wood carvings on the legs (I've been told they were carved by hand) and the inlay-ed scenes. I paid $200 for them and have been told they may be worth upwards of $2000.00. Can anyone shed more light on their history and/or worth?
