My grandparents have had this beautiful table sitting in their basement for over 30 years, and have owned it for nearly 50. They think was made sometime in the 1940's. I wish I had taken a before picture, but sadly I did not. It looked pretty hopeless. But-my Papa has pulled through and has been working himself to the bone trying to refinish this gorgeous piece. He has been at it for nearly 6 months! It looks like all of his hard work is close to an end, though. He says it needs a few more coats of lacquer and sanding. Also, it is missing a leg on the bottom. We are actually trying to find someone will be able to make it for us. But-I just wanted to share. This thing is too beautiful not to!
