Antique Table help! Sign In/Join 
posted
Our family came across a table my late grandmother received from her uncle. Story as I know it he purchased the table while living in Sweden in 1941 for $2500 from a Jewish family fleeing Germany. We have extensively researched the Internet and library archives and still unable to learn more about the piece mainly to adequately insure the table as it is beautiful and seems to be quite rare.
I am only able to attach the tabletop image but as you can plainly see the inlay is very detailed with either gold or brass( my suspicion is brass) the legs are five hours heads and their from legs with the inlay continued throughout the piece. Any help to find the right people to help appraise the table and also it would be fun to learn more about such a wonderful piece!

Wish I could help but that probably should be appraised by a professional. It is quite unique.
