Item:383415317826VTG Mid Century Modern Ficks Reed Rattan Furniture Tiki Bamboo 2 Tables 4 Chairs This is vintage Ficks Reed Company mid century modern rattan or bamboo furniture that was my grandparent's. They purchased their home in 1956. This furniture has been in the house since I was a little kid and I am 51. I believe them to have had it since the late 1950s. My grandpa liked to do paint by number kits of Pacific island themes and this may have been the reason they bought this furniture. Ficks Reed's headquarters was in Blue Ash right here in Cincinnati Ohio. I am thinking this furniture was all the rage in the 50s and 60s. 2 of the chairs have broken rattan and one of the good ones has loose springs in the seat. The tables are both in good shape but there are some marks and spots on the formica coverings. The 2 cushions I have are aftermarket that my mom bought some time ago and are not included. The originals were black vinyl and long gone. The canvas that reinforces the seats and covers the springs needs replaced. I don't know if the rattan or bamboo can be urethaned where it has splintered to hold it together so it can be re screwed. The sold Ficks Reed stuff I have looked at on eBay has a sticker that says Ficks Reed Co on it. Mine has a metal plate stapled into the rattan. See the last picture. I would think this would signify greater age as metal plates stapled into the wood would have come before stickers. I know this stuff is an older example of a furniture company that is no longer in business but hugely popular. I know mine needs restoration work, but I don't want to just give it away either. I am listing it at $1495 and will consider offers. A newer 6 piece set recently sold for $2295 I am happy to answer any questions or provide more pictures. 12 isn't enough to show the quality of the pieces or all the things I described that need fixed.Type:Living Room Set, Region of Origin:America, Age:1950s, Style:Mid-Century Modern, Sub-Style:American, Maker:Ficks Reed Co., Material:Wood & Fabric, Original/Reproduction:Original, Color:Beige
