Hi William,This is Robert here again. Hope you are doing well.Thanks for making contact with a new thread, here are the appraisals for the next two items:(1) Mahogany gaming table.This may possibly be Irish, there's a hint of Celtic revival in the carving, a revival that was just beginning when this piece was made. It dates to the last quarter of the 1800s when rococo ornament became fashionable again. I would describe it as:An early Victorian mahogany fold-over gaming table, last quarter 19th century, the shaped top having a molded edge that opens to an inset playing surface, and rotates to reveal a container for cards and counters, enclosed by a serpentine frieze, veneered and centered with applied carving of scrolling acanthus, raised on a carved baluster pedestal and four shaped supports, each with strapwork carving, and terminating in volute scrolls and original brass & ceramic casters. Full retail/replacement/insurance value $6000.(2) Victorian photograph album. Circa 1883.A leather bound photo album with colour illustrated pages celebrating Britain's glories in arms. Complete index beginning with Departure of the Romans from Britan - 420 to the Battle of Tel-El-Kabir, Sept 13th 1982. Containing carte de visite (CDV) style family photographs. The cover tooled and deeply embossed in Gothic-revival motifs, exterior condition good to poor. Full retail/replacement/insurance value $250. Hope this helps!Best wishes,Robert
