    I purchased this marble top (pinkish color) table at a yard sale. It's in great shape and looks wonderful at my front entrance. I'm new to antiquing so really have no idea of what kind of table it is or how old it might be. I would love some expertise if anyone has any to share.

      Welcome to CW :-)
      Not a furniture specialist, some may know better... Casters and marble top are a clue for age, I think!

      Thank you eastlake it is. I'm going to do some research, hoping to find the age. I will get better at this ;)

      Great table.

      It is Victorian Eastlake and dates from 1870s- 90s.

      Now for my 2 cents. Your picture #3 is one of the better ones I have seen on here. Anyone can reproduce an Eastlake but few can match the craftsmanship. Your picture #3 captured the interlocking joints. I question the nail head I see but the joinery is absolutely Eastlake quality. They actually made keyways (similar to dovetails) to lock everything together. I loved seeing it.

      Thank you for your comments fhrjr2. As I said I'm new to antiquing so your comments have made me re-examine my table. First when I read "I question the nailhead", I thought, what nail head? Then I saw it. It is the only one of its kind on the whole piece. One of the legs has a break in it and I can see the wooden dowels holding it together. Another leg appears weak and again I see wooden dowels. I did take further pictures but can't post more om here. Would love for you to see them and get your opinion.

      Thanks Scott and Trunkman...missed your comments earlier!

      LexaKay - I am sure if you look the piece over carefully you will see joinery you have never seen before. As an example (depending on when this was made) lay a mirror on the floor under the center pedestal where the legs join it. You should be able to see a key way where the legs slide up into the pedestal. Very small detail but a rather important one. I think if you examine the joinery you will see this piece is like putting together a jig saw puzzle. That is also a clue to identifying real from reproductions. Train your eye what to look for. What is right and what doesn't belong. Learning the basics only takes a lifetime so be patient.

      Fhrjr2 thank you again for your words of wisdom. I will be following your advise closely. This is so interesting to me!
