    Beautiful! Could we see the inside of the drawer? Underneath of the table? Any markings on any of the pieces? Back of the cabinet or inside the drawer may have markings?

    I have a sneaking suspicion, this is a repro.

    Why do you think it's a repro?

    My take would be that it's a lovely ca. 1900 oak set in great condition. It's got some Renaissance Revival elements a la Horner, but it's also got a nice "no nonsense" heavy functionalism. In fact, it's a great combination of the two.

    Hope springs eternal for the lover of brown furniture! I would think that this set would appeal to virtually anyone that wants a good-quality dining room set....it's got enough decorativeness for 19th century aficionados, and enough plain jane for people with a more modern bent. Plus, the pieces seem to be built like tanks and will last another hundred years easily with a little TLC.

    Well...It's hard to say without looking at the dovetails and drawer insides. I think, IMHO that these pieces did not start their life together. You have a variety of 'feet' claw and ball, hairy foot etc...I question the table...most of all.

    Agree, 1900 or so and not a matched set. Chairs may actually be just a tad later.

    If these are repros, they are late 1800 repros....they are passed down from generation and never left the family....we think they are from 1875 or close to
