This table is in great shape. From what I have seen, I think you could get $150-$175 for it.

It appears that your table is in very good condition but it is difficult to judge by just a photograph. Has it ever been refinished or repaired in any manner? If anything has been done to the table, that would lower the resale value.
There are a lot of Mersman furniture listed on auction sites like eBay and Etsy at different times of the year but so many pieces were made (about 30 million pieces) that it is hard to place a true value on any item unless you are in the antique business.
Pedestal tables have always been popular so yours might bring a better price. If you are thinking of selling I believe you should consider listing on Craigslist (start at 200 dollars or more) and someone can actually see your table's condition (and there would be no shipping).

The problem with listing items on auction sites is the area is very limited because shipping is difficult and very expensive (which just adds to the cost of the table but no gain/profit to the seller). Small furniture sellers usually list their items as local/pick up only which really puts it in the same area as Cragislist shoppers.
I hope you just like your table and wish to keep it in the family.

The value depends on the condition. Most of the tables I have seen are in the $100 to $150 range.

As you have painted the table, the value (if any), would be much lower.

There are a lot of Mersman tables on the market but they are not always fast sellers. You must like your table and apparently you have a special place for it in that beautiful blue so I would recommend that you enjoy having and using your table as the Mersman company did do excellent work and used great woods.

They made over 30 million tables during their manufacturing years so you may see one at almost every antique shop and many listed on auction sites.
It is true that once a vintage piece of furniture has been painted the value drops as an antique and would just become a nice painted table.
A painted table like this would probably sell for $25 - 50 if listed on the right site.

I am hoping to find the value of my Mersman tall 2 door lighted curio cabinet! The number (104 26) is stamped on the back of it. I googled it every way I can think of, with no success! There are end and coffee tables for days, but no tall curios. I want to make sure that the buyer and I are happy once the transaction is complete!

Thank you for taking the time to read, and for any help/advice given!

Mersman end tables are popular items but they do not appear to be fast movers. Perhaps because there are still a lot of these still available. You can almost always find several in any "antique" or vintage store you enter. Prices vary according to the condition and the popularity of the design.
There are usually always a large number for sale at any of the auction sites and the asking prices can vary from $40 to several hundred dollars but that does not mean they are all selling for those prices. Auction sellers usually have listings for furniture for sale for maybe weeks or months and sometimes never sell for their asking price. Shipping is a very big problem and very expensive so sellers may have to limit their sales area to their own local local.
You can try checking out listings on eBay and Etsy as these are the two largest auction sites but if you have local furniture auction in your area you might want to check those out.

Here is a link to a site but try not to get carried away with their asking prices.

I have a pair of end tables that were my grandfather's. I find a lot of info on Mersman coffee and specialty tables, but nothing on the ones that I have. Under the Mersman name is 66-2. The paper tag from the furniture store offers no addition info. Any idea of the age? Any idea of the value? I know the value will depend on condition, and they do have some minor scratches. Thank you for any help!

Mersman tables were made in the mid 20th century. They are less than $100 each. Yours are in great shape, so I would ask $75 each.

There seems to be very little known about actual dates/years most Mersman table were made and there does not seem to be a list anywhere that even antique dealers can rely on. Dealers usually try to go by the actual type of marks on the underside of the tables and that is the reason that most tables will just say "mid-century".
There were so many tables manufactured that most are not really very valuable and they are not fast movers on auction sites. Furniture is very costly (and difficult) to ship so many auctions will state "pick-up only" - no shipping.
You may want to try selling through your local sites (Craigslist, ??For sale) Google your zip and ask about selling items in your locale.
Mersman made table with all kinds of wood and finishes so that would also be a factor in their value.
Please remember - auction listings are just that - listings - and does not always have anything to do with what an item can be sold for. Here is an example of most dealers opinion of the value of these tables: Mersman tables today have little collector value due to their overwhelming availability.
Here are some links for general reading and some sites with tables listed that may give you some idea of what you are searching for:

I have a Mersman table which has the number 2745 stamped on the bottom and written on the bottom over a another number 503, but no label. It's very probably from the 1930s. I inherited it from my grandmother. It's the two-tier pie table.

Unfortunately in a recent move from one state to another, it was treated so roughly that the rims of both tiers were damaged, on the top, so severely that a section of the rim was actually broken off in two places, and the veneer badly scraped in several places on the rims of both tiers and gouged. Plus the entire foot of one of the three legs was entirely sheared off (and "thoughtfully" returned with the table).

The table was not in pristine condition when I inherited it with some damage to the veneer on the top tier which was easy to cover, but the aesthetic value of it has now been totally destroyed. Repairing it would undoubtedly cost more than the value of the table.

Can anyone help me give an estimate to the mover's insurance company for the damages? The table, which surely qualifies as an antique, and which more importantly was a family heirloom, is now totally destroyed. There is obviously no value I can put on that, but I definitely want to put in a claim for something for the way they treated this and the several other pieces of treasured furniture they just destroyed.

Thanks.

The value may be whatever you'd pay for it at Ashley or similar furniture store. It's still a "used" table. While it's a beautiful table, it's not restored. It's been painted. Go to eBay, punch in Mersman furniture for values of original-finish tables.

When I got married in 1967, we purchased Mersman end tables and coffee table. These are top of the line tables. Mine had a drawer in each end table and the joints were dovetailed. I hope you are enjoying your table. Dont let anyone make you feel badly about it. I gave my away because they were too big for my little house. I think my daughter has them.

As with everything, Manuela, it's worth exactly what a potential buyer is willing to pay. If you really want to know, list it on e-bay or craigslist and see if anyone's interested. The words you use to describe the item will either compel people to buy or repel them: it's up to you. "Gently used Mersman," for instance, will certainly be more appealing than saying "used furniture."

You can find prices on EBay, Craig's List, online searches, antique dealers, etc. Most buyers prefer the original finish on furniture and no refinishing, paint etc., of any type. As you have painted the table, the value is much reduced.

Take some good photos of it and take them to a couple of estate auctioneers, a furniture store and a couple of antique dealers. They should be able to help you. Asking on here may not be the best, as we are all from all over the country and world. Prices vary greatly depending on where you are located.

From harryrinker.com: If your coffee table is a pre-World War II Colonial Revival piece, its value is between $35.00 and $45.00, assuming it is in very good or better condition. If it is a post-World War II Colonial Revival example, deduct $10.00. If the coffee table is in a post-1945 modernist style, its value jumps to the $65.00 to $75.00 range.
