Help in identifying year/style of dining room furniture

ulla01October 20, 2012

I am looking for help in identifying style/year & type of wood of this older dining room set. The table & server seem to be wood with veneer. The chairs seem to be chippendale style. Any help would be much appreciated.

The era is late 1950s to 1960s. The style is based on French Provincial. These were made by lots of different manufacturers like Henry Link, Basic Witz, Vanleigh, and others.

Thank you. I looked for identifying marks (stamp, name) on the furniture but was not able locate anything. Would you know where I could find out what the value of the set is. It includes the table, with two inlets, 6 chairs and the the dresser/server.

There is no particular value for this furniture, it is only what someone is willing to pay for it in your area.

I would follow pieces or sets on eBay to get a general feel for it. In my area people buy the bedroom sets in this particular style, but the other stuff doesn't seem to sell very well: it's kind of out of fashion at this point.

Here this is the kind of stuff sold to urban hipsters who want to be "ironic" and have something that is clearly furniture that came out of their grandmother's house. But they don't want to pay very much for it, either.
