    Good evening all,
    I've recently noticed this maker becoming popular within my world...lol
    After a little research I learned this furniture maker has been popular for many years. Odd story behind this table is...a few months back I was looking for a friend who needed an end table a little taller than the norm. And I noticed a taller one in the SA closest to my home, and that turned out to be the first piece of H/W I'd ever purchased, then a few days ago I seen this table in the exact same spot in the same thrift store, I found that odd. But I can't nail down the exact year or decade even, that this was made. I think 50's or 60's. I do know the stamp on it was first used in 1946 and that this table is called, or considered to be a bamboo and rattan table. But it appears the legs are oak with burned on bamboo marks, and the only rattan is wrapped around the legs. And the tops look like maybe maple?
    If anyone knows more about this table, please do share. Thanks!

      Heywood-Wakefield used actual rattan canes as structural elements until WW2, when the supply was disrupted, and in the late 1940s replacement items for the "Hawaii" line were introduced using steamed ash instead. The ash was burned to mimic rattan. The tabletops are white birch. I don't know how long these pieces were produced.

      Thanks Artfoot! I had read some of that info but I couldn't find anything about them burning the bamboo marks on. But it's easy to tell when up close. And I found nothing about them using birch. You've been a great help! Thank you!

      I love this kind of furniture and often it falls into the category of "blonde wood" which a lot of this furniture is called. Back when I was young we had a blonde table/magazine stand and all our bedroom furniture was blonde wood also, it was from the 50's to early 70's used. The magazine table I loved and I am sure it was my moms favourite. It needs some work to come back to life. Looking for another as I have so many books etc.

      Not too long ago we had someone post a couple of tables they thought were Heywood-Wakefield, and was looking for information.

      I'll see if I can find the post.

      Hi, thanks Gillian for forwarding my post on here. Any chance someone here could help me out with a couple of tiered end tables that are H/W and show model #M-1573G. I haave not been able to find much about theese, I did see one sold on another auction site in 2008 with the same model # M1573G and in the description it stated they were made in 1956 but production of these did not even last a year and was stopped for some reason. I just want to confirm that as well as try and find some sort of value on these. I was not allowed to seee what the one in 2008 sold for nor did it have a photo of that one I could view. Any help would be appreciated as I have run into a complete dead end on these. Thanks again, Mark

      Hi Markyoung!
      I see in the link shared by PhilDMorris that it does say the recognized value is 450.00 not sure if that helps or not.
      And did you read the comment above by Artfoot? He shares some good history also.
      Good luck!
