Jeff Guy replied to John Taglione's discussion Help with a primitive old sled in the group Whadja Find Today
"John, you seem to have a business. If so, how have you been pricing things before now? You need to look for similar items either online, or in your local area. The latter is a better idea of value, unless you are going to list and ship online."

Hoping its use may point to its age.Kind of like a trivet, but it seems strange for a trivet - only 2-1/2 in tall so too low for a fireplace trivet, and if for a table, why would it spin? Also, the round button in the middle makes it…See More
