Wow I started out my day today moving my computer into its new location and as I was passing my kitchen table I thought.."I wonder what kind it is" yep "The jefferson woodworking company" my wife said..lets look it up on the net and find some info on it..well 3 hrs have passed..she is in bed and I am still searching and it looks like I am not alone.
Here is what I have found and it isnt much actually its just a family name "Mercke" I am not sure if this is correct or not but thats what I have. Also I have sent emails to the Kentucky state library, kentucky wood working shops older then 50 years, one wood working TV show.. if anything folks I am persistant. I will get answers. and yes I will gladly share them with you all.
My set is in excellent condition 6 chairs and a dark burgandy. it was givin to my wife when we got married by her grand father. we cant wait to pass it along to our kids..of course they are 2 years old and 2 months old so it will be awhile. =)
