Topic tags/keywords: antique table dump salvage tlc

This person found this table in the dump and salvaged it. It’s up for bid on e-Bay in hopes of finding it a craftsperson to give it some TLC: http://cgi.ebay.com/OMG-you-have-see-RARE-AWSOME-ITEM-but-needs-work-/190392387535?cmd=ViewItem&pt=LH_DefaultDomain_0&hash=item2c544547cf . Maybe someone here is willing to give it a new life. It’s located in PA.

It will be interesting to see where the bidding goes.

If it’s not from Ikea, and less than 60 days old, then It’s not good (I guess)

Some people don’t know value. Yes it might have been missing a few pieces They it’s dump time. I’m sure that the Smithsonian would be willing to restore it.

It would be nice to know it’s history.

I would imagine European.
