I have a mahogany Duncan Phyfe-style buffet with a brass plate in the top drawer that says "Brickwede" I've been unable to learn anything about this firm. Can someone possibly provide some background information (where manufactured, brief company history details, etc)? Thanks in advance for any assistance!

We are moving to a smaller and need to sell a Brickweded dining table with 2 butterfly extension panels, custom made felt pad, 4 straight back chairs, 2 end chairs with arms, and a matching buffet. The buffet has one long drawer, 2 short drawers, and two side cupboards. Mahagony colored wood. We purchased the set from the original owners. Mfg in the late 30's, early 40's. All are in very good condition.

Recently purchased a sideboard from a thrift store. It's in pretty good condition. Needs some TLC. Top has some water marks. Few splits in the wood. Inside top drawer has the oval plate "Brickwede". Drawer pulls might be brass plated. Number stamped on the back is b-b-co 253. Two long drawers. Top has two smaller sections with felt for silverware. Bottom has cabinet doors. It looks like walnut doors possibly also used mahogany. Any information on this would be great. Love the piece - plan on keeping it.

Brickwede started in 1850's making tea tables and fireplance mantels. Earlier furniture is quarter sawn oak as wide as 21 inches with solid oak bottoms in drawers
He made obviously handed the business down to sons or grandsons and it becane Brickwede Bros Fine Furniture and used a squar brass tag from 1917 to 1959.   Earlier furniture had an oval tag in the draw of side boards that said just Brickwede.   Side boards like mine with the oval tag are estimated to have been made cs 1890's to 1916
Based on the materials hardware type of carvings and other factors my estimate of my side board is 1895-1905

Usually they are split up and sold seperately. This set came from an estate sale years ago in Knoxville, Tennessee. Similar in quality to brands such as Baker, Bernhardt, Berkey and g--, Henredon, and Drexel, "Brickwede" was known for making quality, high-end furniture in Marietta, Ohio from 1917-1959. National known, their furniture was shipped by train to New York, Chicago, and even San Francisco.

Set Includes:

Duncan Phyfe (fife) Table and 6 classic empire saber leg "rose back" chairs (one captain & 5 side chairs)

I have a Brickwede mahagony buffet and china hutch for sale. The buffet is 53"L x 22"w x 35" tall. It has two drawers on top, one is divided for silverware, then a narrow full length drawer for linens and three doors on the bottom with a half shelf on the inside for china.

Hello, I have a small resale shop in Lenoir NC and I have recently acquired a Brickwede Bros. Drop leaf table with two extra leaves for the center. It also has a complete table pad protector and a matching sideboard/buffet. These were purchased in 1939 in Florida. These are styled after the early Duncan Phyfe pieces. These are in very good shape and I would like to sell them. I had them appraised by an antique appraiser. She told me the table is worth around $600 with the 4 chairs and the sideboard is worth around $450-$500. I will sell the table for $450 with 4 chairs and the buffet for $325.00. If any one is interested please call me at 828-754-6700. Leave a message if no answer. Shipping is available.

I also have a Duncan Phyfe table. Does anyone have a rough idea of the value of these dining room tables with chairs. I have three of these tables; two have the metal or bronze work on the bottle of the table legs. The other table has a bear claw made out of some sort of silver material? I have roughly 6 or 8, table expansions. It is my understanding that one of them came from a very old country home where many people would gather and eat, so they made the table very, very long. I also have several chairs, I cannot recall how many? Where is a good place to gets these appraised? do my pieces even sound worth it?

I was also inherited two Chippendale chairs from the 1980's from my great grandma? Anyone have a rough idea of their worth? Should I hane unto them? Thanks for all your help you all. deejfield@aol.com/dfield1@fairview.org

Set is made up of buffet/side board (2 side doors and 1 middle drawer with silver ware drop-in drawer), china cabinet, table top (closed 62" - with 2 14" pop out butterfly leaves)and 5 chairs (1 captains and 4 side chairs). The one table leaf butterfly has the Brickwede metal plate. Stamp on bottom of table says Oak. Looks like very heavy veneer with solid Oak skirting. Will be putting on old antique table legs as there weren't any with table. $1,000 when done. E-mail for pictures and more info. l_bkuhlhorst@hotmail.com Run a mapquest on Celina, Oh 45822 for general location

I have a mahogany (I think) three drawer chest that was my mother's. I have no idea how old it is. I am wondering how much it is worth. Has anyone had a chest like this appraised? I just discovered the Brickwede nameplate inside the top drawer. My mother was born in 1907. Hope to hear from someone.

I am selling a lovely Brickwede dining table with one self-storing leaf, six chairs and buffet. I will have it up on Craigslist by the end of the day. Wanted to give a heads-up to Mary Ann and any other Washington-area folks who may have an interest.

Just discovered our dining room set is Brickwede. One of the chairs has a paper tag saying "Registry No. 1859. Very difficut to discern the full serial number with the exception of "250-B". There is no label on the table. The set is mahogany, although the chairs(6) are in excellent condition, the table does need to be refinished. This set is for sale-Make an offer. I can be contacted via email at: rondatompkins@yahoo.com. I am located in New York State.

We recently purchased a set of 6 chairs all with the Brickwede label under the seat. Also we have a Duncan Phyfe drop leaf table from the same estate. We have found the Brickwede name on the table. These are of mahogany color. These are for sale. Better send a fax to 740-446-7612 here in Gallipolis, Ohio as we are experiencing problems with our outlook express on zoomnet.

We have had a Brickwede table for 20+ years that we bought at an auction sale. Sold the chairs last year before realizing they might have some value. Our table has the brass plaque on it and 2 butterfly leaves hidden under the table. The top is made of pressed wood and has some wear. Sits 10 comfortably. I am ready to sell it if anyone is interested.

I have recently acquired my great-grandmother's brickwede dining table and 6 chairs. I would love to be able to complete the set and add a sideboard or hutch/buffet if I can locate such items. If anyone knows of someone who is interested in selling these pieces, i would greatly appreciate the help. thank you! my email is sarahkaty@yahoo.com

From jennifer, 12/14/2007  11:02 PM

I forgot my email -if any wants to help me. Does Antiques Road Show make house calls?

From Jennifer, 12/14/2007  10:54 PM

I have a Brickwede piece (single) and I'm not sure about the value. It is a sideboard/ something you would keep in the dining room and use as an extra piece for serving. it has a single drawer, and 2 doors that open up to a shelf in the bottom. Also has a tricky pull out above the drawer for extra placement. I picked it up at a garage sale. i know its good wood, but I have no idea how to sell it. Please help. Oh, I live in Chicago area

From CArolyn, 11/19/2007  5:58 PM

I am looking for 4 to 6 more chairs for a brickweed mahogany color with an engraved rose on the chair back.

Anyone know where I can purchase some.

From connie, 11/6/2007  5:05 PM

I inherited a Brickwede dining table, buffet, and four chairs. I am looking for 4 more chairs to add to my set. I live in California and willing to pay for shipping to my residence.

From Holly Wallinger, 10/20/2007  6:25 PM

I have a Brickwede sideboard, dining room table, and 8 or 10 chairs. They are all in reasonable to good condition. They belonged to my grandmother, and no one else in my family wants them. I'd love to sell them to someone who would care for them. Interested? I'm in the Columbus area.

From Mary Ann, 10/13/2007  4:14 PM

Hi all, I have a beautiful Brickwede set from my Grandmother. I had it refinished and it is gorgeous! I am really interested in buying more chairs and the side boards you are all speaking of. I have the dining room table, a china cupboard/hutch, 5 good chairs and 1 broken! Anyone looking to sell off some pieces? I live in the DC area but would be willing to pay for shipping anywhere. I have familly in Columbus and Akron that I know would pick up for me as well. Let me know and I am glad to know some folks who are knowledgeable about Brickwede!

From Nancy, 10/13/2007  1:16 PM

It sounds like I have a similar Brickwede bros. sideboard and dining room table & chairs.
Does anyone have pictures?
Where are the serial numbers(I have the brass Brickwede label).
Any further information available would be appreciated. I am thinking of selling the set.
Nancy please e mail any info.

From Victoria, 10/6/2007  12:57 PM

I too have a Brickwede Brothers sideboard, but am unsure if it is mahogany or walnut. I also sold the dining room table for far less than it was worth - $100 without realizing it. If anyone has info on these sideboards (without hutch, five feet long with clawed feet and beautiful inlays on doors))please feel f--e to contact me. Mine is in beautiful shape - looks brand new. I just polish it with lemon oil. Thanks, Victoria

From Angie, 9/19/2007  6:18 PM

I, like the rest of you, have a Brickwede dropleaf dining table and buffet cabinet. Stupidly I sold the chairs a few years ago (5 for $50)... Does anyone know where the model numbers are located?   We took it to the Antiques Roadshow a few months ago. At the time, we hadn't noticed the Brickwede label on the inside, so we didn't know who it was made by. Neither did the appraiser (!?!?!) All he said was it was very nice, in great condition and well made. I found it later that evening when we were bringing it back in the house. The appraiser said that it was worth $600 - $800 (it has 2 leafs and a full set of protective pads).

I recently gave it a good once-over with a mixture of 2 parts mineral spirits, 1 part boiled linseed oil. I applied it with a 0000 steel wool pad with the grain and then wiped (with the grain) off the mixture with a clean cotton cloth. This cleaned the table up beautifully. It had always been oiled with lemon oil, but hasn't looked this good in 35 years!

Brickwede made furniture from 1917 until 1959 in Marietta Ohio. I graduated from Marietta College, and still hadn't known about them until I started researching the table after the roadshow!

sorry, should have included an email. zannasue@hotmail.com

From Tari, 9/19/2007  11:38 AM

I would love to see a picture of any of the furniture mentioned. I picked up a Brickwede Brothers sideboard last year at a yard sale but have no idea it's age or what wood it is made out of. I'm cleaing it up as it has some issues but is mainly in good shape. Any information I could get on value and history would be great!

Thank you!

From Barbara, 8/17/2007  11:13 AM

The Brickwede furniture manufacuring company was in Marietta Ohio from 1917 until 1959. The company gets it's name from the Brickwede brothers who owned the company. They shipped, by train, furniture to New York, Chicago and even San Francisco.
See the Marietta Times article dated 7/1/2004.

I love my solid oak buffet that they made!

From Cara, 6/4/2007  6:13 PM

I also have a Brickwede table. (I don't know anything about Duncan Phyfe.) It used to be my grandparents and then my parents and now my family has it. It has two extra leafs that are under and a part of the table. They do not come off of the table. They are sort of on hinges (its hard to explain) but, they are really neat. You have to pull a lever under the table and then pull the two ends of the table apart and then the leafs swing up from the middle. The leafs are in really good shape but the rest of the table is pretty rough. It is our daily table. I've thought to have it restored but, I think it would cost a small fortune!

From naomi, 5/7/2007  11:46 AM

I have the buffet and dining table that has a ring on the end to pull apart and bring the extra leafs from the center of the table.

From Hugh, 8/14/2006  7:05 PM

Just wanted to Add I too have the china cabinet, with the two glass sliding doors on top. Simple one of the best finish's I have seen in awhile. I personally wouldn't let this go for under $600.

I'm unsure of the tables never having one.


From Terry, 11/3/2005  12:36 PM

I also have a Brickwede, Duncan Phyfe dropleaf table, buffet, 6 chairs, 2 additional leaves, table pad, lace table cloth and linens. Does anyone have any idea of the value in excellent condition and best place to sell. twoodburn@centurytel.net

From Sharon, 10/26/2005  12:26 PM

My dining table has nothing on it and I was surprised to see the Brickwede plate on the inside of the china cabinet drawer. I always thought (for 50+) years that the set was all Duncan Phyfe. I am getting ready to sell the set, but can't find out if either has any value. My Duncan Phyfe (?) table has the luted or Musical symbol chairbacks. Any info is appreciated. kennship2000@yahoo.com

From Bob, 10/22/2005  1:27 PM

I purchased what I thought to be a real Duncan Phyfe dinning table. It also had a brass tag that has the name Brickwede.The table slide system was designed by the jefferson Woodworking Co. (est 1981). I started to re-finish the table top and found it to be made out of pressed wood. Duncan Phyfe (1768-1854) this could'nt be one of his tables? roberte@ameritech.net

From Jared, 10/7/2005  5:24 PM

Marietta, Ohio is the home of "brickwede". Their pieces are notorious with quality and the company was headed by a Charles O. Brickwede. That's about all I know. -Jared

From sharon, 9/30/2005  12:40 PM

Did anyone find anything out about this? I too have a Duncan Phyfe table. Nothing on it, but the china cabinet has a metal plate that says Brickwede. I believe my parents purchased the dining room set in the late 1940's. kennship2000@yahoo.com
