Let's Identify: These end tables

A recurring theme around here is: cool unidentified stuff.

There were thousands of companies making things in the mid century era some of whom have come and gone leaving behind only highly desirable artifacts about which no information exists. How's that for a run on sentence?

Here is the first in what I hope becomes a regular feature of our site. Reader Identification Friday. I'll post a series of pictures of a piece that I can't identify. You then take your best shot. Manufacturer, date of manufacture, style, whatever. Or just comment on it. No prize, just the satisfaction that you just might be a real smarty pants. There is a wealth of information on the web, hopefully we can share it.

The inlay on the drawer may be indicative of a specific manufacturer. Or not.

Attractive styling. Don't you think?

Oh, look. There's a pair of them.
What do you think. Know anything about these?

We'll be back later with . . . more stuff.

  1. Good lookin' set of tables. And flexible too...these could be used as night stands or end tables. Shots from inside the drawers, the side, back and bottom would greatly accelerate your info search. Is see this a lot on Apartment Therapy, where they have one or two pics of a chair and are asking for an ID...sometimes I'm able to help and I love the challenge (this is a great idea BTW!) but need more visual info.
