Carved Antique Table

January 25, 2015

Hello  There

Let me introduce you to a new addition to our furniture family. 
 I love this table, it is packed with so much character. The pretty carvings, the finial in the middle and those casters.  

Notice the pretty flowers carved into the legs.

And this feather-like detail on the sides

I found this piece in the attic of my fathers-in-law home.  We are not sure where it came from or what type of table it is.  I researched this table on the Internet and couldn't find anything like it. 

If you know what kind of table this is feel free to leave a comment......
Your comments are appreciated.

I am a collector of Victorian walnut furniture so I can tell you what you have. :)
Your parlor table is walnut with what is called incised lines and is in the Eastlake style. It dates to the late 1800's, probably 1890 or so. How nice that the piece is staying in the family.
Take care and have a great week,

OMG! I have one just like it. A friend at work (many years ago) gave it to me.

I was shocked when I saw that table, for I have one exactly like that! It came from the great-great-great relatives who lived in the southern part of Wisconsin. What fun to find another like it - and I see that Sue has one too! :-)

I have one also, but mine has a removable marble top!

Lovely table! I can't help with its history, but I do have a out for the wheels...they look like metal and will scar the floor. You should either put rubber pads under them or replace with rubber. I have such wheels on both the piano and tea cart...we have rubber pads under them...our floor guy insisted when we put in floors.
Enjoy the table!

I've got a house full of Eastlake, and agree that this piece definitely belongs in that category! The straight lines and incised decoration are typical for the Eastlake style. This is what is called a "center table." Very likely it would indeed have been positioned, free-standing, in the "center" of the room (away from the walls), likely with a chair on either side. There may have been a hanging (kerosene) lamp above it or a free-standing kerosene lamp positioned on the table. One might have sat alongside this table to do "fancy work" during long evenings, to have read, or perhaps to have played some sort of board game or the like. If the wheels are original, do not replace them. If you do not move the table by rolling it, no damage to your floors should occur. This is a lightweight table -- lift it, if you must move it.

Hi there! Found you on Furniture Feature Friday:) I LOVE your table!!! My mother has a few of these tables, and she decided to let me have one. The one I chose doesn't have these types of carvings on it, but it did have the original marble top to it. However, because it's chipped badly on one corner, I think I'm going to replace it with a wooden top like yours. Thank you for sharing such a beautiful piece! Have a great day:)
