Got this depression era Mersman drum table at auction yesterday and really didn't need one but the internet totally degrades these tables and that makes them non-collectible in our fantastic economy. Mersman tables were mass produced to create jobs in the depression era and around 30 million manufactured. The table;"my guess" is 90 years old and still looks good compared to a three year old Wal-Mart sawdust table. This is an American made table of real wood and devalued totally by the web because they are still plentiful after 90 plus years. At auction every Antique dealer was shaking their heads no way at $40.00 so it came home with me. American made, real wood??
The number is 5990
