    I was wondering if this is worth trying to save. Any idea on an age?

    When you upload a photograph, you will have two options -- Thumbnail and Full Image. You will want to click on Full Image because a large photograph of your item will appear within your post. Like this.

    Hi @Mielikki, and WELCOME to ANTIQUERS!! Looks to have some nice inlay.....would you be doing the restoration yourself, or having it done?? Have you done restorations of this kind before??

    Is that inlaid wood marquetry or leather? I'm sorry, it looks like all wood, but I don't want to guess without seeing more detail. Aquitaine, can you tell?

    Either way, it looks worth saving! ;)

    Looks dried out - rub some type of refinishing oil into it! The Fine People on here will have more definite ideas on what to use.

    I would try to do it myself but I have never done it before so it would be a learning piece. I am not sure it its worth it or if it would make it worse.

    Looks like most of the work is done for you. Probably won't get those rings out since would be easy to sand through the veneers doing so. Won't hazard a guess on age without pics of construction.

    The half walnut trick may well help those rings.

    If you do refinish it, we'd love to see the results!! I think it's definitely worth doing!!!
