Hi.I have an old smallish trestle table with wrought iron legs.Top is pine with metal on corners. Markings stamped on top metal corners are as follows.Broad arrow with F under one WDC under 16 under VDM under another.MARS printed with very fine weld.Looks like small pin-head weld spots that write the letters MARS.Stamped also is Stokes . Stevens&Son 1900 .Another place is stamped EMMA ORTON 1895 and EMMA ORTON 1900.On the stands is stamped DOUGLASS BROS LT C&M 1902. Can anybody shed any light on this table for me please. I hope i am in the right place. Thanks.
It sounds an interesting table. Can you upload a picture?
Apparently, Ames Stokes Stevens has been a supplier of metal work to a wide variety of industries since 1847. They are situated at the heart of the West Midlands motorway network, near to Spagetti Junction. They make hinges and box fittings.
