I picked up this neat octagonal side table today from a craigslist post for $45. It's a neat piece but I know absolutely nothing about it. It appears to be an antique and from what I can tell is made from a darker wood (walnut/mahogany). The top is made from 4 pieces of quartered wood. There is a stencil on the bottom that is very hard to make out with the naked eye. The flash on my camera helped a bit.
I've attached some photos. Looking forward to any information about maker, period, and/or value.
Thanks in advance.
The stencil and exposed screw says this piece was manufactured mid 1900s. In excellent condition, in central virginia vintage retail - not more than $100.
