This is the china hutc  

table with 2 of the 4 chairs
table with 2 of the 4  
I have a table with an internal leaf with 4 chairs,a china hutch and a buffet that was my parents.  I think it is from the 1920 -40 but am not sure.  It is either cherry or walnut, it is a very dark wood.  I would like to know its value and what style and make of furniture it is.  It says Penn Table Co. on the bottom of the table but no other name on the other two pieces.  If you want a picture of the buffet I can send one.
Thank you for any help you can give me.

made in the 1920s.  called colonial revival style.

retail in shop pricing would be around
table
450-650
chairs
65-85 each
china
400
buffet or sideboard
if it is a match
450-550

Expertise

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. robertsantiques@cox.net 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.

Experience

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.
