I have an antique dining room set made of solid African

Customer Question

I have an antique dining room set made of solid African acacia wood. Under the table it's stamped- 70.table.acacia.8.F.T
There is a table, buffet and China cabinet. The carvings in the wood are amazing. How do I find out what it's worth?

Your vintage Chippendale-style acacia wood dining set could sell for a high of $750 - $2000 on today's market.

The maker is possibly "Rom Weber".

I don't believe this is a chippandale style. This looks more french. Antique Chippandale sets I've seen are not nearly as heavy or as thick as this set is and the legs on this set are definitely not Chippandale. Not satisfied with this answer

The chairs are historically based on English Chippendale style, they are not French Louis Revival. Regardless, this is a 20th century dining set.
