Walter of Wabash dining set


Posted By Jennifer, 7/21/2007

Hello, I am new to this board and I have recently purchased a dining set that consists of six ladderback chairs, with rush seats and a dining table with slender legs. It is stamped Walter of Wabash underneath the table and there is also a label stamped that I can only make out part of. It says something about Mastercraft, has a set of lot numbers and that's it. Can anyone help me identify the age and origin of this piece? Thanks for your help. Jennifer

I am new to this so everyone bare with me.  I have a lovely soft maplewood table with (2) leafs,  along with these gorgeous multi-colored needlepoint dining chairs and a Captain's Chair.  When we turned the table over it was stamped Walter of Wabash and we could not find any other information.  With my current research most of the responses have stated that the leaf inserts are made by him.  At this point I am very confused and just need some advice on if there are other furniture makers responsible for making this dining set and who they are.  The couple that sold if to my farther over 20 years ago said it was made in the 1940 - 1950's. Please help!

I have a 52" round (w/o leafs)maple table with walter wabash on the slider. It was probably purchased in early 1960's. It is in great condition. How much do you think I can sell for? It has two leafs that make it 52X76.

Since Walter of Wabash make ONLY the slides as stated on this board, I am writing to you to see if you can give me information on how to get a replacement slide for my oak dining room table. It measures 24" in the closed position and is for a one leaf table.
