Value of a Tea and Pie Brandt Table

This dessert tea pie table has a leather top, but does not have the usual pie crust edges. It has a Brandt sticker and Mahogany Association Inc. 156 label on it. It was left to me by my aunt.

I like the Brandt pieces! They are sturdy and some have held their value.

This piece, since it is not the pie crust version still has value, but the pie crust tops seem to garner more than the smooth edge, leather tops (I guess the leather is harder to maintain,although I HATE cleaning my pie crust top table...those little grooves are dust magnets...but that is just me I guess.)

Right now there are none on eBay or any of my other favorite auctions sites in the SOLD columns...which is the only true way....to me... of giving you today's actual market value.

They come up frequently, so check back and see what they are selling for....SOLD tells you value today as it is what people pay.

I can tell you there are some similar out their up for auction on other sites like this one looks a lot like yours although it doesn't have the Brandt name and it has just been reduced to $150:

You may want to watch it to see if it sells and that will tell you the value (sold = value).

Part of the challenge in valuing furniture is where are you located, what is the supply and demand for the piece, what is the condition, and are other comparable items correctly identified.

The last part...other pieces being correctly identified is often a challenge as if the item had a paper sticker, those are often long gone and sometimes even the stamped markings fade over time...especially if you cleaned like my late grandmother did...where she used cleaning products on the top,underside, legs, feet etc and in some cases literally rubbed off identifying markings with years of cleaning.

Thanks for sharing your piece!! Let me know what you decide to do and where you are located if you sell and how much you were able to see from it!! I love learning about values in other parts of the US! Thanks!!
