For What It’s Worth


– Federico Santi, partner, Drawing Room Antiques, 401-841-5060 – Federico Santi, partner, Drawing Room Antiques, 401-841-5060 A friend emailed a photo of a table belonging to his mother inquiring of its value. From the 1870s, this American parlor table has a marble top and is commonly called Eastlake style. Generally undervalued in today's market: replacing the top with a new one of the same marble could cost you $500. This table can be found in an antiques shop for between $100 and $200. Fashions change and hopefully we will return to stylish interiors instead of the boring minimalism that is rampant with decorating today!
