Hi, I want to learn about a dining room set we acquired when we purchased our home, it appears to be solid oak, but I am no expert. Under the chairs and table there is writing that says VA House and a serial number. What can you tell us and do you have any sense of it's value?

Answer
would you please use the followup function and post two more pictres.

one of the table top so i can see the grain

same for the chair seat

thanks

i will tell you that the table top is a veneer.
virginia house was in atkins va.  bought out by bassett in the 1990s.

what you have is not an antique but is still a nice set.

will comment more when pictures are posted

thanks
