You have a nice Lane piece, drum table or drum side table. Quasi MCM (mid century modern) as if if it is 1962 that is after the true mid part of the 20th century.

I have not found this exact piece sell in ages. I see people asking $400-$600 for a pair (so 200/300 each), but so far all are unsold.

Like the other table I commented on, furniture values are regional.

You can start high and take best offer, as I suggested for the other one--focusing on the condition and the extra storage.

People love retro pieces and Lane is a good and sturdy brand (like the Brandt brand of your other table).

These tables will last for a life time!

Post back how both sales go!! Thanks for sharing!

It seems that you have inherited a lot of nice furniture that is made by companies that are very dominant in the industry. You will more than likely need to sell these pieces locally because offering them online will not work in most cases. You would have to increase the value or add shipping to the final sales price which is a bit expensive for this type of furniture. It is possible to look online and get an idea of what people are asking for this style of furniture. I have found different prices for sets of the table anywhere from $200-500 online. Like I did say in my other comment you have to research your area and see what furniture is selling for. You can always try to list this at a higher price and accept the best offer. In some areas, you could receive around $150-200 for this, and in other areas it can be as low as $30-50.

It seems that both of your tables are in the drum style and these are not very popular styles of tables,
I believe one of the reasons may be because the bottom rim is always getting 'scuffed' by everyone walking by (just like your tables).
They also appear 'bulky' and do not always seem to 'fit' in a room - where do you place one? What would you store in the large inside area (in your living room)?
These are just my opinions as the tables seem to be in pretty good condition but when competing against more popular styles they do not always measure up.
Most tables are heavy and costly to ship and that is why most sellers will have 'pick up only'. These tables are even heavier than most normal side/end tables and shipping would be more than the cost of the table.
Here is a good example of what everyone is talking about as to how important the area/location can be. This similar table has been marked down from $184.50 to $166.05 but shipping is very high - $232 with just shipping within the state of Florida. It's possible the seller could have sold their table if the area was good for this type of furniture.

Lane is a well respected name in the furniture world so with that in mind, clean up your table, take some good pictures and post your table on sites like Facebook Marketplace, IOffer, LetGo, OfferUp, and any of the the other sites you may be familiar with. Start your price high - maybe $350-400 and show best offer considered and local pick up only. List it on several sites and no offers after 2 or 3 months then reduce the price and wait again.
This is really about the only way you will be able to find out if you live in a 'good' area for this style/type of furniture.
