ANTIQUE FURNITURE RESTORATION DISCUSSION BOARD

please help me identify table and chairs

I got these from my aunt's house after she died.

The chairs have curved back legs made of layers of wood, and the back of the chair has a cross-piece with a pattern cut out of it. The front legs are slightly curved and tapered. The seat originally had a fabric of maroon and white stripes on it. Underneath the seat is stenciled "5000 MAH" and "R.S. WINE."

The table has drop leaves at both ends and an insert for the middle. There are two legs going down from the table top, each of which has two curved legs attached that rest on the floor. Underneath the top is stenciled "5004 MAH."

Both table and chairs are a sort of dark mahogany or purple-ish color ("R.S. WINE," I assume).

Does anyone know who might have made these, and when?

Thanks.
