Good Morning Iwona,

My name is***** have been buying and selling furniture since 1970 and I can help you with this.

The pictures of the table are great! . The James B Henderson Furniture Company was located in Washington DC in 1903- to the mid century. They were considered a higher end furniture maker at the time.

These are Federal style prominent in the early 1800s. They would sell for $300-500 each at auction and on the secondary market and insurance value is $2000 for the pair.

Thank you,

Wayne

Wayne,Thanks for the fast response!I guess I did all right - I paid $250 for the pair. Would really like to find a matching buffet or chest but have not been able to discover a model or name for the design.Chris Palmer***@******.***(###) ###-####

Hi,

I think any Federal style mahogany buffet, chest or table circa 1920-1950s could work with these.

Thanks,

Wayne
