Mersman Drum tables
A Mersman Drum table is a specific style of small table produced by the American furniture manufacturer Mersman Tables during the first half of the 20th century.

Background information

Mersman was one of the most famous furniture companies in the United States during the early years of the 20th century. They were renowned for their vast range of tables, with an advert during the 1920s stating that one in ten household tables in American was a Mersman table.

The company produced furniture from the 1870s up until the mid 1990s.

Description

Drum tables are characterised by deep circular table-tops which contain a series of small drawers. These tables are often supported on a single central pillar, which splays to a set of four decorated legs.

Many Mersman drum tables also featured a base featuring a harp design, also known as a ‘lyre’ design, that appeared on many of their smaller side, surf-board and coffee tables.

Value of Mersman Drum tables

Mersman furniture was mass-produced, and as such there is little rarity or collector’s value in the pieces. However, as pieces of furniture the price of Mersman Drum tables can range from $20 to $150 depending on the size, style and condition of the furniture.
