The answer to your question is all wrong. Brandt started in 1901. The company never had anything to do with stickley. The Brandt family had the company up until it closed in 1985. In 1986 Brandt reopened as a small family owened company. We are still here making the same great furniture.

I am hoping you can help me.  I was surfing the Internet trying to find out information about the table I have.  It's a Brandt Furniture of Character, Hagerstown, Maryland, drop-leaf table.  It's hardware (the lion head with ring, on the drawer & the claw feet are in great shape and have been well taken care of.  The lady my sister in law got it from was from Arizona and she told her that it was used as a prop for 20th Century Fox, and it was in the movie 'Wizard of Oz'.  The drawer has it's marking as well as the same underneath it, and is dated 12-13-35.  My marking of the maker of the table isn't made of tin though, it's a sticker.  This should be some indication of when it was made.  I imagine stickers were made at a different time as the tin plates were either earlier years or later...I just don't know but I would really love to see what you think....



I'm not sure if you're still out there at this email address but if you are, and you respond, I would be most grateful to send pics of the table for your viewing.



I'll be awaiting your email and hope to hear back soon.



Thank you so much!

Harry Brandt the original owner of brandt cabinet had nothing at all to do with stickley furniture. The business stayed in the brandt family until 1985 when they closed down. 1 year later my father who worked for brandt for 45 years reopened the company as a small family buisness. we are still manufacturing the same high end funiture here in hagerstown.

 I have what has been described except my table is small and does not have a drawer. It has everything else all the way down to the claw feet but it has an extra straight leg under it. Has anyone heard of one of these tables please contact me and let me know what information you have on it. There is also along with the tin plate it has the number 4864 stamped in the table.          Thanks so much!

I have 2 Brandt end tables, a buffet, china cabinet and dining room table that has a roll out mechanism with leaf including 8 Brandt chairs.  These were my grandparents and acquired by them sometime in the early fifties???.  They all have the plate underneath and are in very good condition.  The only thing is my grandmother had all "antiqued" in white (which was very popular to do in the 1970's and I would like to bring them back to the original wood by removing this antiquing.  Any ideas???  Product I might try.  Any ideas out there would be appreciated.  Thank You!

They have like a line on the front and back in a gold color and around the drawe.i have seen them on line like e bay and others for about 300 for the pair. Does this sound right.
