I think that downt he road they beign Patterson and Hoffman split up and around 1991 there was a Patterson Vending company but I think they are not in business any more.... thats about all the info I got...Hope this helps..

I have a similar table. Exact same nameplate. Very nice table. Unfortunately, this table is missing its granite top! Trying to figure out how to replace it. John

This company closed in the 1930's. They are rare to find and sometimes can go for as much as $20k. At least that's what I know about them from about 10 years ago. The market has changed a lot for many things. So you'd probably need an expert to weigh in on this. We do estate sales and that is why I know about these. The one that we had at a sale had a layer of slate under the felt which makes them quite heavy to move. It was in the art deco style with the geometric styling to the legs as well as mother of pearl inlay. They are quite exquisite tables.
