Mersman was a popular furniture manufacturer that produced furniture from the 1870s until 1995. The tables were mass produced.
I have halted/paused my continual perusing of Goodwill. Phew! I know full well I’m not going to find my dream Russell Wright side table or Mid Century Modern surfboard coffee table at a Goodwill. I couldn’t resist grabbing this mass-produced Mersman though, as I have needed a side table. It was a disaster but after a good cleaning and oil rubdown it is presentable. This Mid Century piece has certainly lived a hard life.
