I love the pedastal table. Hopefully i will be able to find an original piece.
I own the original desk, made by my great- grandfather John Olsen, that is one of a kind made for one of the Heywood’s office. John was a designer of furniture who came here from Sweden, lived in Gardner and later Westminster. Very unique piece of Heywood history.
my mom and i bought 2 pieces of hay-wake furniture at a garage sale in CT in 1973. one peice is (the best i can describe)a 3 leaf hinged clover leaf end table, the other i was told was a doughboy.i was wondering how i might be able to identify them somehow .any direction someone could give about how i might be able to find out the era of production and the like. i could care less about monetary value my thanx to anyone
