    Thrift Shops ....you never know .............

    I recently went to the shop a friend told me about and she had this table. She asked me what I'd give her for it and I said $200.00 and she said ok.

    So I had no idea or any info on this table. When I started looking I found 1 of these that I could reference it too. The table is called a Spider table circa 1760's The legs are spooled. It is very frugal, I'm told not many exists. So what was the closest price tag I could put on this table after cleaned and waxed. Just take a little guess ?





    $7,600 I hope I can find a buyer.

    I dream a lot. I do more painting when I'm not painting. It's in the subconscious.

    That defiantly belonged to someone who had some money back in the 1760's. Looks English to me. Any clue as to who the maker was? It's amazing something that delicate could of lasted so long.
    Can't wait to see it all cleaned up.
    I wouldn't be surprised if you got what you think it's worth at auction

    Spooled , like tread on a spool. The bottom of the legs. They were either turned up feet like a small show or spooled.

    Bob It's English, I been talking to my friend who's farm I hunt in Va. He has taken a job as a buyer / picker for Freeman' It will probable go there for auction if I can not sell it soon through my connections.

    Question: anyone know what the red thing in the back ground is ?

    What a find!

    You need to be very active and play a course game.

    Nice Find

    Hmm, looking for other variants I see closer to $670, are you sure you didn't add a zero? (google search "gateleg Spider table")

    http://www.christies.com/lotfinder/f...4-details.aspx - $625 vs estimate $1,500 - $2,500
    http://www.liveauctioneers.com/item/10191241 Estimate $600 - $800 Starting Bid $300
    http://www.bonhams.com/auctions/18158/lot/263/ Estimate: 200 - 300
    http://www.aspireauctions.com/auctio...ils/35565.html Sold $891.25

    Or am I not finding the right thing?

    Either way its a very cool piece, nice find.

    [edit] Hmm, this one is closer to that price.
