I have a set, 2 chairs a rocker and a loveseat made by MR.  My best guess is they were made after 1950.

Hi, I  have 2 Maxwell Royale  love seats, a queen size sofa bed,  a side chair & a footstool.  I purchased the furniture 1972-1973 at a local store. The furniture

was not cheap years ago.   I threw out all the cushions and the sofa mattress but I still have the heavy pine furniture,  the wood is still in good shape.  With new

cushions the chairs would be beautiful.

I think I read somewhere the company was in N. C., & it went under in the late 70's.

Maxwell Royal Chair Co was in Hickory NC.  It was founded in 1946 by my grandfather Bruce Correll and his partner Mr Granger.  The furniture he made was beautiful and very well built.  I don't know much more about Maxwell Royal though.

I will attempt to answer questions about American antique furniture, including construction details, style, period, manufacturers, care, repair and storage. I do not have any background in appliances, musical instruments, sewing machines, trunks, lighting, clocks or children's and baby furniture and will not respond to questions about those items.


I ran an antique furniture restoration business for twenty years. I am a nationally syndicated columnist on the subject of antique furniture for such publications as Antique Week and New England Antiques Journal. I have produced one video on the subject of furniture identification and my book "HOW TO BE A FURNITURE DETECTIVE" is now available.I have also published articles in Antique Trader, Chicago Art Deco Society, Northeast Magazine, Victorian Decorating and Lifestyles, Professional Refinishing, Antiques and Art Around Florida and Antique Shoppe.
