I grew up in Connecticut in house that was built in 1769. - I believe that sparked my interest in antiques/vintage items. I have to admit however, I do not know much about any particular thing. We cleaned out my grandmother's estate and my parent's storage barn and I have/had some pieces that I wanted identified and could not find anything on them. I stumbled upon this website and posted some items. I appreciate all the feedback I have received. This is a great site with great knowledgeable people. Thank you everyone! (Read more)

  3. Great idea shareurpassion!! I am just curious of its origin. We've had it for years and I wonder what it was used for.
  4. Slackjack - I know that there are pieces/slats that fit over the top drawers when you open the cover. I think only a few of them may be original. I am not really sure how to place them. I will try ...
  5. I just did some research and this looks exactly like this piece - except mine does not have the casters on the feet. *** Outstanding Baltimore Federal Mahogany Card Table circa 1805

  19. Thank you for the information mustangtony. You are right, it is an 1894 O. How do you determine the Mint State? Would I take it to a coin collector for that? - Or would it tell me in a book? I kn...
