Thank you very much

Thank you very much for send over that photo.

Your foldaway table was originally patented i 1929 by the Fain Folding Furniture Corp in Norfolk, VA.

In the current market your fold away dining set would have a retail antique shop value of 2500-3000USD in excellent condition.

The shabby chic piece is a rarity and would be hard to find in working condition, which aids i the resale value.

If you were to attempt to sell the piece yourself, I would not take much less than 1500-1800USD for it.

I hope this information was helpful to you today.

Best of luck with your vintage fold away table.

Any feedback you can leave for my service would be much appreciated.

Thank You,
