fw2 11 7c 740563 Herter Brothers Inlaid Aesthetic Movement TableSeveral visitors have come to the site looking for Herter pieces so I am profiling this parlor table attributed to Herter Brothers by the seller, Bradfords Antiques. I will leave the description to Bradfords below, but will first let you know that the listing runs until February 27th and as of today, the price stands at $2,550 with the reserve not met. It’s likely only at a fraction of the reserve with much headroom to make up.
