What a BEAUTIFUL lamp table or end table by A. Brandt!!!! It is comprised of rustic solid ranch oak with a Natural oak finish that is signature to A. Brandt Company furniture. The Natural Oak finish was made by sealing the wood, double coating it with lacquer, and applying liquid wax and Spanish whiting. The framed pegged top has a simple but eye-catching design. The skirt of the table has been carved with two inverted u shapes and its four legs are held sturdy with a box stretcher along the base. The all-over woodgrain is outstanding, and the finish is gorgeous. Obviously, this lamp table will be beautiful at the end of your comfy sofa with an antler base lamp or western style table lamp of any kind. But it would also be wonderful in a rustic style sitting room beside your favorite chair with books, a plant, or some cactus, and I’m sure you could sneak in a cup of coffee or a cocktail! The possibilities are endless because of its versatility and over-all simplistic beauty.
A Brandt Company was established in 1900 by German immigrant August Brandt. But it was Paul Brandt, August’s son, who engineered and debuted the Ranch Oak furniture in Fort Worth, Texas in 1938. Paul served as company president for approximately 50 years. The production of the Ranch Oak line continued until the mid-1980s. It was used in ranch homes, mountain homes, dude ranches, and basement rec rooms across the nation. The US government contracted Ranch Oak furnishings for many of their military bases. And it was used by National Park lodges plus roadside motels for its attractive, durable, rustic type of décor.
