The Dean C. Woodard Furniture Co. made good-quality coffee and end tables from the 1940s to the 1960s. XXXXX XXXXXard was the grandson of Lyman E. Woodard, who founded another furniture manufacturing company in Owosso in 1866.
Lyman's company switched from making wood to making wrought-iron furniture in the 1930s. Now the company is called Woodard Furniture and makes wrought iron, cast-aluminum and wicker furniture and accessories. It's headquartered in Chicago but still has a factory in Owosso. These wrought iron vintage sets sell for 600-700.00 today and are quite common on the market.
The 1950's Woodard tables are very hard to find and have a collectors market who find them desirable. A leather top round table has a vintage furniture value in the range of 150-200.00, in excellent condition. The best place to sell these are at a specialty shop or locally but online auctions will attract a lot of collectors who may have an interest in mid 20th century pieces.
