I have a six sided hexagon end table it looks to be in very good condition. The label says Mersman 38-5.
Considering your table is in good condition, or what I can tell from your photo, you should be able to ask around $50 for this table. These types of tables don't have a high resale value.
Mersman tables are well made but so many were produced (mid century) that resale value on most styles runs in the $45-95 range.
I am trying to find a date, value, and info on this table. I have two and they are in fair condition. Thank you.
I found this set of Mersman end tables on the curb. They're in fantastic shape. There are drawers on the bottom and they have what look like leather tops.
Excellent find! From what I have seen on eBay I would value them at $75 each.
You have basically identified them with the number 9142. This company uses to produce these types of tables in mass production when they were in business. So many people had these in their home at the time.
I have a Mersman table #7434. Could you tell me what kind of table it is, how old it is, and if it's worth anything? I can't find anything online about it.
Mersman tables were made in the middle part of the 20th century. This is one of the larger tables. From what I have seen, tables of this kind are worth between $175-$225.
This company closed in the mid 20th century and when they were opened they mass produced tables for people's homes. At this time most homes had one table or another made by this company.
How do I find out the value of a Mersman table, 6296?
Finding the value of your Mersman Table:
It's a long coffee table with three posts on each end.
This company made hundreds of thousands of tables back in the 1920's. The tables were inexpensive and most everyone owned one in their home. Unfortunately, that means that these types of tables did not retain or increase in value over the years. Many people think these types of table are worth a lot of money. However, this isn't the case. The tables normally sell from $50 to $200 depending on the condition, supply, and demand at the time you want to sell the table.
Mersman tables were made in the 1950's. If it is a long table, it is probably worth $100-$125, if it's in good condition.
The company made more than 30,000 tables in the 1920's that were sold to almost every home at this time. The tables were not made of top quality wood so therefore, they don't hold a resale value as a top quality piece of furniture of this time.
This type of table is common and sold frequently on eBay and other auction houses. Normally a table like this goes for around $40 to $60. However, keep in mind these table values will change from time to time depending on the supply and demand of this model.
This table was made in the mid-twentieth century. From what I have seen on eBay it is worth about $100.
What a beauty!!! I love Mersman's mid century modern (MCM lines)!! They remind me of my childhood!!
On this piece...it is hard to tell from the picture, but if you look at the link I will put at the end of this message (you may have to scroll thru a couple of pictures to find the near match). I am thinking someone removed the lower 3-4 inches of the the leg. If you see the one I saw...it has that neato MCM leg with the extra piece.
Look at your piece and the one in the pix to see if you agree. You may also want turn your piece over and study the feet... a tell tale sign would be a rough, unfinished, wrong color, etc. finish.
It doesn't help with putting a $ value on the piece...but it will help you when you find a comparable to know if it is fully intact or altered. Sadly, altering a piece usually lowers the value to a true collector.
That is why I always only buy what I love....not what is "collectible" or "original" or "perfect"! It fits my lifestyle to do this...but that is just wonky old me!
I have a small table from my mother-in-law (born 1909) that was her mother's table. It is a Mersman with the number 4685 on the underside. Is it one of many or more rare?
Thank you for any information you can offer.
Mersman furniture is popular but the asking prices are all usually whatever someone thinks it should be worth.
just as information:
There is very little information available about Mersman furniture except that everyone agrees their furniture is of the highest quality. Your piece should have a Mersman mark with a number on the bottom so check that out.
This is one of the better articles written about the history of Mersman.
It is hard to tell the condition of the table. It looks like it is in fair to good condition. In this case you can sell the table for $65 to $75.
I have a Mersman table that opens up in the middle and has compartments inside it. It's labeled Mersman 7371. Year? Rarity? Value? It has a hidden secret compartment in it.
The company made many of these types of table back in the 1920's and many people had them in their home. Considering the condition of this table your value or price for the piece won't be much. You could ask around $35 to $50 for this in the condition it is in. These tables were manufactured in the 1920's like I said earlier.
I purchased this coffee table with a drawer and wheels for $30. I am wondering if that was a good deal and what it may be worth.
The table looks in fairly good condition and it doesn't seem to have too much damage at all. I feel that you paid a fair price for this table. I believe people are selling tables similar to this one on eBay starting at $50 to $75.
The selling price of these types of table is based on demand. How many people are looking for this model will determine the value of this table. If not too many people want this model of a table the selling price is lower.
Before the company closed its doors, they sold so many different style tables for homes. These tables were mass produced and sold for a very reasonable price. These types of table didn't hold their resale value like other tables made from this time. However, I feel like you have purchased the table at a fair price and you could double your investment if you wanted to sell the table again.
I have 2 matching Mersman 7015 end tables with glass covered surfaces. How would I find a value for them, either to insure or sell? They are in excellent condition.
Matching Mersman end tables:
I have a Mersman round table and a rectangular table 7384 and 7499. How much are they worth and is that a red or Bombay mahogany?
These tables are mahogany; I'm not sure which.
The round table is in better shape. I think it's worth $100. The other one is about $75.
I have a Mersman table with the number 3-39 stamped on the bottom. How old is it and what is it worth?
