MerklenTable 799771 Merklen Parlor TableSometimes we get presented an opportunity to trade up on our furniture collection and this weekend I had that opportunity. “Trade Up” is the phase when “Add” is no longer a possibility due to space. While perusing one of my favorite antique haunts I ran into this great Merklen table with the hollowed out triple-spiral legs – probably my favorite Merklen design element.

The table that it is replacing is one that I attribute to Merklen due to the stylistic elements and the brass/wood ball and claw feet. I had always intended to fix it up but you know how that goes… off to Ebay it will go….

    I only discovered your site tonight!! How excited I was to see the photo of the Merklen Parlor Table above, since I have an identical piece. Can you tell me what year(s) these pieces were made?
