    full set.jpeg table.jpeg small piece.jpeg buffet.jpeg china.jpeg This set has been in my family for a few generations, but I'm not sure of it's exact age. My mom believes it was purchased by her mother in about 1950, though we have no record of that.

    The set is in quite good shape. Very few scratches. I have seen this finish called Flame Mahogany. The set includes 8 chairs, table has two leafs and expands to over 100", breakfront china cabinet, buffet and smaller piece.

    Any idea how old this is? What is its value?

    First of all, we do not do values here, There are too many factors effecting value and saleability to do that on an international site.

    Secondly your pictures aren't close enough to see the details, including the wood grain and finish.

    I'll tag some furniture specialists for you. @verybrad @Ghopper1924

    Hi SJoseph:

    I agree with your mom's date: ca. 1950. This seems like a high quality set, very nice flame mahogany veneering. Sadly, we have passed from the Age of the Dining Room, and there are many older sets available, though not many are as nice as yours. With this plethora of dining room sets and not alot of demand, prices are low.

    Agree with the circa 1950 and mahogany. Sadly, the set would probably sell for less than $1000.00 at most auctions. You would see it higher at retail but there would be few takers and would probably have to break it up to sell.
