    I just picked this table up last night! I can't tell who the manufacturer is because I couldn't find any markings on the piece. Is there somewhere I should be looking that I don't know about?
    I know the base of the table is wrought iron, and that the wood table top was added at some point down the road. Its pretty cool because when you step on the pedal, it spins the wheel around!
    Can anyone shed some light as to how old this is, who makes it (by looking?), and what its value is?

      If it's not marked it could be hard to ID it. That is an old sewing machine that someone made into a table

      The bottom is from an old sewing machine. There were many manufacturers so unless it is marked there is no way to know. Someone just put the top on it.
      I have seen them with heavy glass used for a top also.

      About the only base that is quickly identifiable is Singer, they always had an S, either in the side frame or incorporated in the treadle. This one could have come from any one of a dozen companies.
