Collectibles-General (Antiques)/R & E Gordon drop leaf table


Henry Kitts wrote at 2014-10-29 14:24:24

I worked at the R&E (Richard and Ed, who were son and father and who were kind men) Gordon Furniture Company in the 1950's until I joined the Army in 1962. It was located in Woodfin, NC, a suburb of Asheville. The building burned in the 1960's. The company manufactured quality furniture in mahogany, cherry and black cherry, and perhaps some other woods. I still have a Gordon Dining Room table and a coffee table made in black cherry. They also had a furniture outlet store located on Merrimom Avenue in Asheville, but the name, which escapes me now, was not the same name.

In regards to American antique, vintage and collectible furniture I can help with wood identification, styles, age, periods, historical coatings, materials, techniques, repair, restoration, refinishing, and value. I do not study mid century and later furniture nor do I deal in lamps, and other smalls. You may ask for values and I will give you current market values, I will not give you 'feel good' values. Understand that there are many factors that contribute to market value. If you want a feel good, unrealistic number, please call a local inexperienced appraiser. It is my desire to help you and in doing so I increase my knowledge as well. For that I thank you.


I have been in the antiques furniture and restoration business and in the sales of antique furniture for 40+ years and have continued my education in the trade attending workshops and seminars by various organizations, institutions, and private collectors.
