Hello and Welcome to Just Answer,My name is***** am a Personal Property Appraiser and would be happy to assist you with your question.Your game table and arm chairs would have been produced circa 1960 and from the photo appear to be maple. This rustic style was made popular in the 1950's when maple reproduction antique furniture was exploding on the east coast. The chairs are modeled after a Windsor style chair and the table is modeled after a pedestal table.

In excellent condition your game table would value between 450-600USD and the captains chairs would value between 45-65USD each.

If there are any damages to the finish on the chairs and table or any structural damages, this would detract from the resale value.
