Most of these tend to date from the second quarter of the 20th century (1925-50),  but made well into the 1970's. They look older because they are designed to resemble 18th to early 19th century English furniture. Value depends on condtion, as the cost of refinishing is expensive. Most go at auction for under $200.00 these days.
