Value of a Mersman Table?

I am selling a Mersman end table #27-2. What can someone tell me about this particular piece and how much would you sell it for? Any help here would be greatly appreciated!

These tables normally sell around $50 to $125 each depending on the region you live in. Selling online is a bit harder and can take longer to sell. Plus you need to worry about shipping the sold item to the customer. I would suggest trying to sell in your local area you might be able to do better than selling online. You can start off by listing the table for the higher value and then lower the price if anyone is interested in buying it.

No record of dates / numbers were made available by Mersman so unless you have personal knowledge of purchase date or have seen it in an old sales flyer you can do like most everybody else does and mark it as 'mid-century'.

This style table or very similar tables were made at several Mersman factories and different dates so you will see similar tables but will have different numbers. I'm not sure a buyer really cares about the numbers.

Your style is more simple but most similar end tables have a shelf and drawer and these seem to be more popular and usually sell faster and for more money.

Sellers list their pieces for low and high prices as there is really no way to give a good 'current value' as pieces are never in the same condition and rarely in the same area.
Condition and location along with style are the things that help determine value.

You can look at similar tables (but all have shelves) to see that sellers are just putting a price they would like to receive for their item.

You can check eBay sold listings for your table or similar tables to see what people have paid over the past several months but this is only for 'suggestions' as no two tables will ever be the same and may not sell for anywhere near the same amount of money.

Location is important because shipping is expensive for large pieces of furniture. Some areas will like this type of furniture while others will not pick it up if it's free.
People are downsizing and furniture does not usually sell very quickly.
You may want to check out similar tables within your area to see if there are listings and if they are selling.

It is usually easier to list on sites like Craigslist, Facebook Marketplace, etc and you can list it as 'pick up only'
Start your price high and lower it if no one shows an interest.

According to just collectible: "30 million items of furniture for the American market. These mass-produced items are of such abundance that they have relatively little value as collectors items or antiques on todays markets."

As such probably has more intrinsic value as a functional piece than as a collectible
