    Found this in an old warehouse in downtown Los Angeles and bought it from a gentleman who bought storage units and their contents at auctions, he had no information about its provenance and had no interest in it. I did so I purchased it, I would love any opinion as to its identification, There are no nails or screws that I could find it looks to be fitted and glued, the wood is a hardwood possibly redwood and it has all the earmarks of the Arts and Crafts movement to me but I am no expert and could easily be wrong. The second tier has a very elaborate inlay as well and it is an incredibly solid and sturdy table. I would be grateful for any help with its provenance. Thank you

      This won't be easy to pin point in terms of the maker. Inlay looks like it was done by an apprentice who was trying to learn the trade. If you ever do identify it and find that the apprentice became a master craftsman that would make the value skyrocket. Might be worth the $20 to have the online appraisal at the top of the page and see if they can match it to an individual. If it were mine I would certainly spend the $20 and hope.
