Hi!
We have 2 Lane Furniture end tables and a coffee table from my husbands grandmother.  Are they worth anything? We were going to give away one of the end tables (we don't have any use for it) but I thought I should check with you before.  A cursory google search didn't come up with much.  
Large square end table
Serial No. 560230
Style No. 99706

Coffee table
Serial No. 461704
Style No. 99701

Smaller end table is pictured also.

Thanks so much!

Answer
Natalie - The only collectible furniture Lane ever made was the line of cedar chests in the 1930s. Everything else is a modern production "dustable." If they fit and you have a need for them they are worth something. Otherwise they are disposable.

Thanks for writing.
