I'd appreciate a hand identifying the origin and rough date (and perhaps restored value?) of a coffee and side table set I stumbled across. The set I have is in pieces and in need of a fair amount of TLC (see pic).
That said, I did manage to find pictures online (without any identification, unfortunately) of what appears to be the same table in much better condition and those pictures are attached.
Any assistance would be greatly appreciated.
You will have to look underneath the table for a manufacturer's marking. It will be impossible to identify this table without it.
It's beautiful! The only ones similar to it I'm finding are unmarked.
Finding the value of a table.
Go over the table for marks or numbers you need the manufacturer's name.
Then go on e-bay and punch in the name and any information on your table.

I found this coffee table at a yard sale. There are no markings or stamps as to where it came from or who made it. Is this a Mersman table?
Mersman tables are clearly marked, so this table has been manufactured by someone else.
It has really nice mid century modern lines....my personal fav!! There is one very similar on an auction website, but it doesn't have the maker. I will paste the link at the end. If you think yours matches (they give measurements), maybe if you contact them they will give you more info on theirs to help you figure out if you have a match!
Mersman furniture is usually always marked very clearly so I would say it is not a Mersman.
Your table may not be very old as it has metal glides/taps on the leg ends and these usually indicate a newer model as well as a maybe less expensive piece.
I believe the metal glides may have started in the 1960's which could be determined as "mid-century".
I hope it is something you will enjoy refinishing and using in your home as it is a nice design.
This furniture does not have any markings. Can anyone identify the manufacturer of this coffee table?
Without identifying markings it is impossible to tell who manufactured it.
This is quite unique looking! Identifying it may be a challenge because these pieces were sometimes hand crafted and if it is old enough it could be a one of a kind vs. manufactured. Do you have any idea on the age? What I find unique is the metal chain. I am curious if that is original to the piece or someone customized it later.
What is the white...fabric? That looks much too new to be original. Is there a second glass piece under the fabric?
In some circles wrought iron can be quite valuable. If you are asking to ID it to sell it, you would be best served by finding a reputable antique/vintage furniture dealer and having him//her value it for your area.
With this method is you will get the most for it and will not have to deal with the muss and fuss of people traipsing in and out of your house to look at it.
It is very unique!! Please post back what you learn!! Thanks for sharing!
