End Chair  
Could you please tell me the type of my dining table and chairs and if you have any idea on their value?  I was told the chairs were c.1890 and the table is c.1910.  Thanks!

Answer
Hi Susan,

To answer your question regarding the table, I would say first that it is done in the Jacobean style and dates to the 1920's and made form Walnut, a common practice for this style of
furniture. I date the chairs to the 1920's as well.

The chairs are done in a later Queen Anne style.  They are a rather simple production machine
made example.  With the turned cross-stretcher base they are attempting to copy a New England
style, but a failed attempt, for sure.

As for value, the table is worth $175. to $225. and the chairs have a value of $20. $25. each.

Best Wishes.
