I found this set several years ago at a consignment shop and paid a ridiculously low price for it.The set has six chairs and they are very heavy wrought iron with an oak leaf pattern.The table has a formica top and two inserts that will accomodate the six chairs when fully extended.This set was made to be used outside but at the present time is being used inside in my kitchen.it brightens my day.
When I first purchased the set it was a green color and have since repainted it in white enamel.
The only markings on the set was a sticker that said "Woodard" and there is some printing on the wood frame under the table top which I have not been able to make out.The only other thing I was able to find out about the set was that it is from the 1940's,or around that time.I would appreciate any information that can be offered on what I think was a great find, I paid $125.00 for the whole set.Thank you for taking a look.
P.S.
Its time for a touch up as you can see in my photos,it gets a lot of use.

I contacted the customer service department at the Woodard Co. about this set so here is an update:

Dear Ms. Owens, thank you for your email inquiry . . . you have the Orleans collection . . . very nice and lucky you!!! Wish I was so lucky!! I have 1 catalog that is dated 1969 and they are listed there . . . not sure exactly what years it was made, will have to email Engineering to find out . . . at that time the Arm chairs retailed for $51; Side Chairs for $43 and your table, depending on the size would have retailed for $130-180. I would not have a current market value, you would need to find someone who could do appraisals for that information, maybe thru a local furniture store or your insurance company could suggest someone, not sure. I’m jealous, ha!!! You have a good one!!!
