Q: This Duncan Phyfe table is in great condition and hasn’t been used for the past 30 years. I have five original leaves with all table pads and a glass top for the closed table. The sales slip says “50th Year, Brandt, Furniture of Character, Hagerstown, Maryland” and “The Warfield, Reg. U.S. Pat. Off.” I’d like to know its value.
A: Harry Brandt started his furniture company in Hagerstown, Maryland, in 1901. The company made high-end mahogany tables. His son, Carl, was granted a patent for his design for an extension table in 1937. The Warfield was advertised as a table that grows with your needs. It could extend from 60 inches to 130 inches long when all five leaves were added. If your sales slip is from the original purchase, it indicates your table was made in 1951. The glass top may be a later addition. The company closed in 1985. The five original leaves, glass, pads and original bill all add value. It could sell for $100 to $1,000.
