Drexel Heritage

How Old is my Drexel Dining set?

I found this great old dining set at a thrift store for $400. I had to tighten one of the pedestals and found an old paper under it that said DREXEL furniture company on it. I looked up their history and they became Drexel Heritage in 1974 and the company started in 1903, so I know it is somewhere between there. All of the chairs seem to have lines at the top like the very tops were taken off and put back on again. I was also wondering if I could cover the whole thing in a varnish, or protective finish because the wash on it seems to come off if it is wiped, would doing so deminish it's value, or should I just leave it alone. Any suggestions on a date and value for sale would be great. Please see pictures below. Thanks

That's a beautiful dining room set, and I wish I had the information for you but I was unable to find anything.
As far as the finish, if it is coming off, a natural, polyurethane coating (non-yellowing or waterborne type) would protect it (and keep the original state).

Here is the link to contact Drexel directly; I'm sure they'll be able to help you are at the least provide you with the resources to find out about your set:
