I found these chairs and table on Craigslist. No information other than "vintage". Does anyone have any information or thoughts based on these pictures? I greatly appreciate your time! Thank You!

    I would venture a guess that it is a laminate table made by Adelaide or similar to their products. Don't lean back in the chairs and don't push down to hard on the extension leaf. I believe these went the way of the drop side baby crib.

    So, not worth buying? I'm trying to do all my research before seeing them in person tomorrow.

    What's your intention for the set? Are you buying to keep or to flip? If you are keeping it, you like the set (I like it...looks like a nice alternative to Heywood Wakefield) and it's priced appropriately...buy it! If you are going to be trying to make a buck off of it, I doubt that you're going to be finding a big name associated with this set and I believe you won't be making a killing on it...unless you get it just dirt cheap and have a huge market in your area for Retro.

    I want to buy it for myself, and I do like the look of it as well. However, if it is cheaply made, as fhrjr2 suggests, maybe it isn't worth buying. I guess I'll just test it out myself when I see it. Thank you both so much for your responses!

    If it's the right price and you love it - I would buy.

    The price was right (200$), for me, but the owner informed me today that she sold it last night to someone else. Thanks for the comments.

    That's too bad. Sorry to hear that but, as Joseph Addison wrote in Cato..."He (or She!) who hesitates is lost". My motto where these situations are concerned is to Strike While The Iron Is Hot! If when you got the set home it didn't work out you could always re-sell it again. Obviously there was at least one other buyer out there for it! I'm sure you'll find another though.

    If it helps, close your eyes and picture that table set with the new owner's finest crystal and china just moments before the table leaf collapses. I had a table with leaves like that once, and was always in fear that they would not stay in place.
