This is a gorgeous Victorian-era 1860 to 1880s mahogany or walnut flip top game table with one drawer and a pedestal base. The flip-top with felt allowed for card and dice games then the table flips back up and away to be a lovely decorative table.

The value of this table is 2700GBP.

Thanks so it’s original antique out of interest where can I sell this for the best price ?!
Expert:  Rarewares replied 14 days ago.

For the UK, selency.uk,
loveantiques.com, justcollecting.com are good sites if you are planning to sell. Also try invaluable.com, liveauctioneers.com and search their
directory for an auction house near you and consign to them.

Customer: replied 14 days ago.
His are in the uk I am in the uk also how do you know this is original antique please
Customer: replied 14 days ago.
Sorry meant these are us
Expert:  Rarewares replied 14 days ago.

These sites I mentioned are in the UK.

Some of the auction houses are also in the UK, you do have to use their search to find the ones near you.

The style and construction determine that this table is indeed an antique. The 100 year+ age is what technically determines an antique.

This style of table was not commonly made as a reproduction.
