Hello, My name is Jason Simpson and I recently purchased an antique dining table and chairs. On the bottom, a stamp of "Lex Chair Company" is seen with serial numbers, department, etc. After doing some research, I discovered that there was a Lexington Chair Company in Lexington, NC. However, I have not been able to find any other information. I am looking for some type of history that might explain the origins of the company, founders, employees, etc. The stamp suggests the piece was manufactured in 1939. Is there any information available about this organization? ANY help would be much appreciated! Thank you, Matthews, NC .

I have 3 harp back chairs, each with a sticker reading "Lexington Chair Company". I, too, wish to know their age. Brian, all have '134 mah' handwritten on them. The wood is lovely. Don't know if it's original finish. Seats have been recovered many times. Michelle, your table sounds gorgeous. Have you found any chairs yet? My sticker also has an address typed on it: MIDWEST FURN. & APP., MITCHELL, SO. DAKOTA. Trina, I don't know if that could be of any help to you. I'll check back here occasionally for new posts.

I also have a table stamped 1872 Lex. Chair Co. The table is a Duncan Pyffe style table made from mahogany with harps on the base of the legs. It has been in my husbands family for awhile. Beyond that I don't know much about it. I am currantly looking for the harp back chairs to match it.

I refinish wood anything and was also interested. Lots of questions, no answers it seems.

I have a dark wood drop leaf table stamped Lex. Chair Company with "1927" stamped on the underside. Movers just damaged it and I'm trying to ascertain its worth.

I just received a dining table from my aunt that has "1939 Lex. Chair Company" stamped on the bottom. It folds down on both sides and seems to have brass covering on the feet. I would love any info regarding this company! Thanks ~Sarah

Hi,

I just picked up a chair at a garage sale made by the Lexington Chair company. It has a tag on it that has the registry number in both North Carolina and a Commonwealth of Pennsylvania tag that has a registry number for the Department of Labor and Industry for Harrsiburg. I'm trying to determine the approximate date of manufacture. Any thoughts?

Hi Jason   
I just read your post from 2002 and I recently inhereted the same table you are describing. You probably won't read this but if you do and have discovered anything about the table I would really appreciate any info you've found.

Thanks!

Mike

Generally, trying to find information on furniture factories is not rewarding (especially if they are out of business or not a famous name like Kroehler, La-Z-Boy or located in the Grand Rapids Area). I will post your message for additional response from furninfo.com readers.
