I bought an oak draw leaf table with six chairs; one is a captain's chair. The purchase included a side table and china cabinet. There are only the numbers 841 stamped on the side table and china cabinet. Wondering the age, maker and value of the set.

Answer
set made in the 1920s but without a label there is no way to determine the manufacturer, there were thousands in operation at the time.  look carefully for a label.

dont know about value in your area but in my shop the china cabinet would be priced at 650-750 and the table and chairs at 1100


style is jacobean wood appears to be oak and oak veneers.
