I have been looking for the perfect vintage 1950's dinette set and have been having problems finding it both on and offline. Looking to spend about $300.00 plus another $50-$100 for shipping if necessary. Can anyone help?

I own a 1950s dinette set and need to replace the rubber floor-protector tips on the legs. The legs are of the style in which two legs fuse, four times... I need special DOUBLE tips... anyone know where to "score" them?

I have six high back (and camel humped at the top) steel tube chairs with peach, tangerine, yellow (two shades) and beige foliage (large leaves) pattern in vinyl. Padded seat and back 90% cotton and 10% nylon. There are only two bent metal pieces that make the legs, frame and two steel columns that go up each side to hold up the back (which are capped with a decorative brass fitting) are all one integrated piece. Each chair is substantial meaning that they are very firm and weigh about 32 pounds each.They are painted (original paint) canary yellow. Each chair is perfect, never seen the sun. not a problem with them. They all have four brass (original very thick and well made, substantial) feet that have a swivel device to hit the floor evenly with the others. They are made by Douglas Furniture in their factory in El Segundo, CA, 1957. I read the whole history of the company. Here it is. http://www.douglasfurniture.com/Douglas_history/Bt m_history.htm
The bottoms of every chair is perfect with the original heavy cardboard bottom (hardly a scratch and all are solidly attached) which has all of this information printed on the bottom. Did I mention that there is a matching table with a missing leaf but is in perfect shape, same original paint, and has a Formica pine wood plank patten on top, which matches one of the colors in the chair vinyl. Douglas Furniture is still in business and is huge. I would like to sell if interested. Sorry, no pictures yet. I just got this set today. Sincerely, Nile Hight

I have a dinette set purchased in 1950. Original black iron with grapes and leaves. Pink laminate table top with a small piece of edging missing. Six high back chairs with the original pink under a still good green vynal. A couple of the chairs are missing a piece of decor or two. Not bad.

I have a 1950's dinette set. Chrome legs. Table is yellow formica. Chairs have green seats and yellow backs. I'm looking for some extra chairs that would blend with it.

I have a perfect 1950 kitchen table with the leaf, it is gray cracked ice with a floral pattern on the top just around the edge and the chrome edging. I was wondering what it is worth.

I bought a house in hollywood florida. The house was built in the 50's and the wall oven and counter top stove were hardly used since 1957 by the original owner. Recently we renovated our kitchen. This incredible oven and stovetop were made by General electric and after all these years, they seem new. They just don't make then like this anymore. Does anyone wish to have these items that are not retro fifties but are fifties?

I am looking to repair our 50s formica-and-chrome table. It has a 3/4 inch plywood top base under the formica. Some of the screws on the sliders underneath are stripped out causing the top to sag, and that is the part I want to fix. As we want to keep the extension in permanently, I thought about screwing in box-section or angle iron braces and forgetting about repairing the sliders altogether. However, I am worried about the relatively thin (3/4 inch) top base and the assumed brittleness of the old plywood. Any suggestions on how to proceed?

I just bought a 1950s dinette set and need to replace the rubber floor-protector tips on the legs. The legs are of the style in which two legs fuse, four times... I need special DOUBLE tips. The table require the rubber to go on the outside covering the leg tip. The 4 chairs have a double tip also. These rubber tips actually go on the inside of the chair legs. Does anyone know where I can get these? Thanks

I am looking for 2 or 4 green vinyl and chrome dinette chairs. I have the cracked ice table from my youth, but need the chairs. Our chairs had the handle across the back and straight legs, not the S shape.
