This is a dining room set made by Temple-Stuart furniture in the Rockingham pattern, a hard rock maple wood set in early American style. This design was made from the 1960's into the 80's. This set of table with leaves and six chairs has a value of $200 to $300. The wood sets from the 80's are not bringing large prices currently because the trend in decor is the 1950's styles of mid-century modern.

This experience was not worth the 34 dollar price. The frustration and lack of help was worth the answer that my original price was set at. 22 dollars. I would hope you are not chat hinging me 34😳

I use this site just like you do, so I have no connection with your account or billing.

It is necessary and required for me to ask for pictures in order to be accurate when assessing your items, so I am sorry if that caused you frustration.

Please remember to click the stars and that the rating is for me and not for the site. I answered quickly and accurately, so I do hope that you will consider a good rating. The good rating is how the site decides to credit me (they pay me separately) for answering your question.
