Each table is a little smaller than the next. All four can be pushed together with one under the other. It is a useful piece of furniture, because I can pull out an extra small table when I need it. My set is at least 50 years old. It looks like the larger Sheraton-style tables. Who originated this idea of a group of tables? A. The tables were first in~ro- duced in England by Thomas Shera- ton in his 1803 design book "The Cabinet Dictionary." He called them "quartette tables," meaning a group of four. lie thought that they would be useful for needlework. By 1808, another designer pictured tables to use for serving food; the small tables were moved to hold teacups or cakes. We call these sets nests of tables. The style has remained popular. Q. My figurine of a boy has the title "Spring Festival" on the base. The boy is playing a banjo. On the bottom of the figurine are the words, "Designed by Erich Stauffer, 8262." There are also crossed arrows on the base. Any information would be helpful. A Arnart Importers of New York City sold a series of figurines known as the "Original Child Life Series" in the 1970s. The early pieces were marked like yours. Their later pieces "~ are marked with the Arnart crown or the crown and the words "Arnart, hand painted." The figurines are similar to the famous Hummel figurines, but they are not exact copies. . i n Q. My small swan-shaped open salt is silver plate with a glass insert. It is marked "Alpacca, Germany." A. The word "Alpacca" is a trade name for German or nickel silver. It is not silver, but a silver-colored alloy of copper, nickel and zinc. It dates from the turn of the century. TIP: The word "trademark" was used on English wares after 1855, but most of the pieces with the letters "LTD" were made after 1880. Order now: Koveis' Antiques Collectibles Prices List.
