Question ID: 208551
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

Hello Norma, I am posting this as a comment for now since I was not able to find as much information as I would have liked. In 1979, Bassett acquired the Weiman Company in Christiansburg, Va., to make and market very stylish furniture for fine furniture and department stores as well as decorators. http://www.bassettfurnituredirect.net/history.html My Hart specializes in American antique furniture from the 1920's-1950's era! They carry a Drum Table manufactured by the Weiman Company http://www.antiquefurniture.us/2-7-03_flame_mahogany_drum_table_fv_wp.JPG The elegant flame mahogany drum table pictured on this page was manufactured by the Weiman Company. The Weiman Company has since been acquired by Basset to manufacturer and market very stylish furniture for fine furniture and department stores as well as decorators http://www.antiquefurniture.us/mahogany_drum_tables.html From Google Newsgroups: I am trying to find a cocktail table to match two end tables that I have. They are made by the Weiman Furniture Company out of NY in the late 30's or early 40's. My grandmother gave them to me and she has since passed away and never told me when she bought them. (I have done my research and Weiman does not make furniture anymore from what I have been told). http://groups.google.com/groups?q=antiques+OR+antique+Weiman&hl=en&lr=&ie=UTF-8&oe=UTF-8&selm=36255A8D.E70B4E82%40mw.mediaone.net&rnum=4 From Furniture World Magazine: I saw a very nice looking low table with a white marble top at a thrift store near me. The name on the underside of the table was "Heirloom Wieman" with the number 6-1900. Can you tell me anything about this company or direct me to a web location that might? You can call Weiman, located in Christiansburg, VA to see if they have a website 540-382-1401... But you probably won't find much useful information. Weiman has been in business for a long time and sells quality contemporary bedroom, dining, occasional and upholstered furniture. -Russell/ FURNITURE WORLD MAGAZINE http://www.furninfo.com/messagecenter/consumerpost1001.html You can view what some Weiman tables are selling for at the following links: Great Weiman Mahogany & Leather Table: This Table Was Made By The Weiman Furn Co. The Table Has Leather On Top. The Table Is Circa 1930 And Made Of Mahogany. http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&item=2531735432&category=1221 http://ebay0.ipixmedia.com/abc/M28/_EBAY_eba0b9dd328888f7f89a0365a636f5c9/i-1.JPG http://ebay0.ipixmedia.com/abc/M28/_EBAY_eba0b9dd328888f7f89a0365a636f5c9/i-4.JPG Weiman Console Table W/Italian Marble http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&item=2532358953&category=1221 Mahogany Weiman 2-tier Table c1940 ($325.00) http://www.chatsworthstudios.com/04-New_Arrivals.html http://www.chatsworthstudios.com/images/03.10.2003.New.Arrivals/Mahogany%20Weiman%202-tier%20Table%20c1940%20$325.00.jpg WeimanŽ Products have been beautifying homes since 1941, when the Weiman family was known for selling fine wood furniture http://www.weiman.com/about.html I hope this helps - I'll be happy to post this as an answer if it satisfies your request. Best Regards, Bobbie7-ga
