I grew up with Drexel Declaration. We had the dining room table, the curved back chairs with the little diamond inlay, ( to reflect the shaker boxes) a low, roundish cocktail table, the long bench table, and possible a couple of chairs, but I don't have them. I have all the above pieces, as well as two "party chairs" that you see in the catalog. Unfortunately the stepmother claimed ownership of the long bench, was too ignorant to know what it was, ruined it, and who knows where it went. I was able to find another in 2009, but it needs work.

Several years ago we were lucky to find a set of Declaration being sold 5 doors down from us. We have a credenza, china hutch, side table, and dining room table (w/ 2 extensions) and 4 side chairs. We have since added a tall chest and a night stand and are looking for more. We would love to have 2 arm chairs and another night stand!

I am going to have our Long Bench Coffee table refinished, but I need information on the correct colour. The previous owners must have tried to refinish it, and the veneer is a basic dark walnut which does not match the solid wood edges and legs, nor the rest of the collecion, such as the dining table chairs and round coffee table. I think "Early American" by Minwax matches. Does anyone have any experience matching the colour, and can direct me to what they used?

Josie Butler


Thanks for your question. We don't have experience using Early American and have found it can be difficult to match the finish of a vintage collection. Instead of looking for a matching finish, try complementing your collection with a different finish. It will create a really nice contrast in your room!


I am interested in finding a round ended dining table from this collection. Does anyone know if the top and edges are veneered or solid wood?

I have a Declaration by Drexel walnut dining table and six catkin captain's chairs. How could I find out more about this furniture line in general, and how much it is worth?


I just picked up a gorgeous Desk in excellent condition from an old retired lawyer in Seattle. Love IT!


I have a china cabinet or hutch that is not listed in the catalog. It has an open top, no glass doors, has 2 glass shelves, a small rosewood inlay circle on either side of the hutch top. The bottom part has the cabinet on the right hand side and 3 drawers on the left side with the white knobs. It is weird that I cannot find it in the catalog listed here. It is clearly marked Declration on the back. The top is numbered 851-210-3 and the bottom is numbered 851-110-4. If anyone has any information on it I would appreciate it.

Hi! Love Drexel Declaration and have two pieces too many. I have two large end tables with the cane shelf below. Beautiful, beautiful condition. Anyone interested?


As an FYI for anyone who appreciations mid century Danish style: There is a full set of Drexel Declaration furniture that is just being made available by Owner, so no mark up.

I have the round table and cane back chairs pictured in the top photo. I bought them from my neighbor for $100 in 1976 so it has been in our home for almost 40 years. Would love to find a couple more chairs.


I have a Heritage*Morganton divisions of Drexel-Enterprises sofa. Tag reads:
No. 16413
PC No 7117
Fabric G-64462
Finish 96

Does anyone have any ideas of age or value. Super comfortable and in really nice condition for age.


I bought a table (881-210) at a thrift store for $9 when I was 17 or 18. It was in terrible condition. Someone, I now figure, had stained it really light and did a poor job as it was peeling. My mother stripped it down and re-stained it to what was then my preferred wood color: cherry. Now? I hate cherry. I want to bring it back to it's original glory, even with the two repaired chunks in the top. I've now had it it 24-25 years and still love it. It's pretty much too big for my current apartment, but I don't care. It stays!!

Please advise what the Declaration By Drexel Hall Chest (881-406) would sell for as I found it at a Antique Barn and picked it up for next to nothing? Thanks for any information.

I am selling a 6 piece bedroom set of Drexel Declaration for my Mother, part of my sister's estate. I am listing it on my Etsy page, SilentJaneSalvage if anyone is interested. I would love to restore and keep it but I am finding information on restoration pieces, hardware, etc, too challenging. As such I am selling this as is.

I have found the Minwax "Gunstock" stain matches the Drexel Declaration line, quite well.


I just reorganized my living room around my square-ish/round Drexel Declaration coffee table with the rosewood circle inlay. I bought the IKEA rug Vidstrup and it is perfect for this look.

I just bought a Drexler 514 decleration coffee table has sliding covers on top to open to storage underneath (that is what the marks are on the bottom say) I have done some research but can find nothing about it or value. Can any one please help
