Question
Penn Table & chairs
Penn Table & chairs  
I have a Penn Table Co dining table, marked underneath #8 (I think - part of the label is torn off) and 5 side chairs #70 plus 1 captain's chair.  Table top needs refinishing; main damage is the edges of veneer on the leaf.  Chairs are sturdy, upholstery is good. I would like to know an approximate value in order to sell it.

Answer
Table and chairs in the jacobean style and/or colonial revival style.  use whichever term will sound best to your buyers.

top is probably walnut veneer rest sweet gum including the chairs.


75-125 each for the chairs and 350-450 for the table would be a fair price.

hope this is what you needed.

thanks

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.
