I have a Kling Solid Cherry knee hole type desk That is from the 50's. It has always been in the same family (my wife's). It is a 4 drawer desk with 3 drawers on the left side. Trying to get an idea of it's value. Want to sell. Label in drawer is red border, black background with red and white lettering "All exposed hardware guaranteed, Solid Genuine Cherry, Kling Means Solid, Maple - Cherry - Mahogany, Kling Industries Mayville, N. Y."

Hello, I have a beauitiful KLING desk.
It has 7 draws all with locks that had the same
flat key. On the left side in the smaller draw it has a
small metal plate that says 'Kling Mayville,New York'
No other markings just writting that says 144. It was bought 10 years ago for a great price because it had
no keys. I took it home and a "Stash Hook" on the inside
had 6 keys on a ring. I lost the hook with all the keys in a move :( Please Tell me anything (anyone) can about this desk and were can I get a key. Thank you,Sincerely

My mother bought new in the 1970's a 8ft long picnic style table with long benches on each side and two captains chairs, a dry sink, a very large open hutch and I think the coffee table, to living room end tables and a tall bookshelf, they are in storage and need to be looked after but she is in bad health and I am going to figure out how to dispose of this stuff. What can they be worth and where can I sell them or to whom? Thanks for any suggestions.

I have a solid cherry bedroom set, purchased in the late 50's. ('57-'58) Perfect condition, four pcs. with a mirror over dresser, a night stand, and hiboy (I think that is what it is called) dresser. It is an orange tone cherry. Bought in Paterson, New Jersey at a warehouse - I think name was Rays and Daniels, needed to know someone to get in. Price was $5000, retail $1200 or more. How do I find out the price for today's market? Who are the best people to deal with if sale is to be made?

I was just checking this site out; I have a full Mahogany Dining Room set six chairs, Buffet, drop leaf table and china cabinet as well as a solid cherry full sized bed room both from Klings of Mayville NY.

From daniel strom, 8/1/2006  12:30 PM


I dont have any more info than Mr. Ahern does,but,I do have a Cherrywood secretary that I am under the assumption is from the 1930's. I too am looking for additional info that might be helpful in valuing this item for possible future auction.

From Ed Ahern, 6/29/2004  11:25 AM

Kling was acquired by Ethan Allen Furniture sometime in the sixties and operated as a separate division until the early eighties when the division was closed.   

From Russell at Furniture World Magazine, 6/29/2004  11:25 AM

I can't find any current information. There is a listing in a 1940 issue of FURNITURE WORLD, Kling Factories, Mayville, NY, Bedroom, furniture, secretaries and desk. AJ Kling pres. That's all there is.
