    This table has been in many of my posts as it makes a good background for my glass. Don't ell anyone but I don't really know how old it is but I have always thought it was from the Victorian age. Would have been used for backgammon, chess or such. Would also be called a game table.
    Note do not put anything heavy on it. I put 1920 Westinghouse fan on it and tried to move it. It is put together with dowels and square nails and I got it put back together again.
    It from around 1870 or sometime after that due to the casters used and the square nails.
    Thank you fhjrj2 for your research on this.

      It isn't a game table I have ever seen. Keep in mind a game table by name is a totally different table altogether. The finish and design mean little and that is about all you show. Joinery would be nice, HOWEVER I can see the casters. Is the metal steel or brass? Are the wheels leather, wood or another material? I think I know the answers but it is hard to tell from a picture.
    7. fortapache fortapache, 6 years ago
      fhrjr2 I will try and take some pictures of the joinery. The casters are brass and the wheels are wood.
    8. fortapache fortapache, 6 years ago
      Added a photo showing some joinery. Looks like square brass nails.
    9. fhrjr2 fhrjr2, 6 years ago
      I hate to be a pain, but could you get a clear, closer picture of the caster? Laminated leather casters look like wood but can be 200 years older. From a distance of three feet they look the same. Sometimes you need to view them with a magnifying glass to be sure. Obviously laminated leather is far older than wood & brass. Wooden wheels came into use during WWII when metals got scarce because of the war effort. However if these are actually brass bound then that is an issue that would need to be addressed.

      I know it is a simple little wheel but it tells a story.
    10. fortapache fortapache, 6 years ago
      There you go, one wheel picture. Thank you for looking into this.

      I would make a guess, only a guess, based on the one nail I see exposed a bit and the caster that this would probably date to around 1870. Could be newer but I wouldn't think it to be much older.

      That table has a lot of Eastlake or Aesthetic Movment influence to it in design. I'd guess 1880s.
