J-H-J, Co End Table

J-H-J LOGO
J-H-J LOGO  
Hello Mr. Taylor,

I own a J-H-J, Co end table (attached). The hand-written numbers on the underside are 3301. Wondering what year and value. This piece has been in my family for years and years. Must be a 1940s piece, I'll bet. I remember it as a child and I'm now 65!  Thanks so much for your consideration, knowledge and help. Take care.

Best,

Richard

Answer
Richard - Based on the HJH logo your table was made in the late 1940s to early 1950s. HJH material, while generally well made, is not considered collectible. Your table would sell at auction in the $50-$100 range.

Thanks for writing.
