Thanks for getting back to me Judd.
The Mount Airy Chair Company was established in 1921 by James and Bruce Yokley. The company was known for the production of moderately priced dining, bedroom, and drawing room chairs, and also dining rm. furniture. The Mount Airy Chair Company merged in 1966 with the Mount Airy Furniture Co.,which was founded in 1895 by John Yokley, E. H. Merritt and E. H. Kochtitzky. The merged companies became Mount Airy Furniture Company, and remained in business until 1997 when a fire destroyed the company. Your Mount Airy Chair Company dining set was produced in the 1920 - to early 30's. In 1926 the United States celebrated its sesquicentennial birthday. In anticipation of that event many furniture makers at the time were creating unique pieces by combining the best of the furniture styles of past years. Your dining set has a combination of Gothic and Renaissance Revival influences from the 19th century. In the current market you would be looking at a fair market value of between 500-650USD for the set in the current as is condition.
The set has seen some use over the years but would still be categorized as in fair to good overall condition and is still very useful to an interested party.
I hope this information was helpful to you today.
Best of luck with your vintage dining room set.
