I have a dining room set that I am not sure of its age. I bought it from a so-called antique dealer who has since gone out of business.
I have had the set for a little over 10 years. It is in pretty good condition with the exception of a few areas where the veneer is starting to wear/come off on the chairs. The table is oblong w/drop-in leaf and it has two clasps on either side of the table for you to extend and/or drop. Some people have called this table a "Dunken Phyffe"(?).
The chairs are my concern. They have a scrolling effect in the center and the veneer is coming off along w/the wood. I would like to know how to fix these chairs so that I can put this set in the paper for sale. Also, would you be able to tell me its age (approx.) and about how much (approx.) it is worth.
The set has a china cabinet with glassed in upper w/two doors for showing off your china, pull out dovetail drawer and then two doors that open with or without a keyholed opening. The buffet has two large drawers also dovetailed and then there are four doors. The buffet, table and china cabinet are in very good condition it is just the chairs. The color is a warm dark wood (walnut).
