Expert:  Glenda B. replied 10 months ago.

Hello

I will look this up to see if I can find who made this. I do not think the R C is the maker but, I will see what I can find in my furniture books.

actualy it is BC not RC you can see it on of the photos
Expert:  Glenda B. replied 10 months ago.

Hello

There is no listing in any of the Furniture Books or the Data Bases we use that have a company that used this B C mark, I did find tables very similar to yours with the same mechanisms that are on yours that date to the very early 1900's which is what yours dates to. Yours can be valued even with the maker being unknown, if you like?
