AH Stock Manufacturing Corp Vintage Grand Server Coffee Table or Bar

Click Images to Enlarge

This wonderful table was manufactured by A.H. Stock Manufacturing Corp. of Newton, Wisconsin, and is called the “Grand Server”. The title hits it on the head. Say you are throwing a dinner party and you need to spice things up. All you do is walk over, slide the top back and crack open your favorite spirits and presto instant party maker! Melody and I purchased this off of Craigslist awhile ago. We really love its kidney shape and the ultra comic white fabric that wraps around it. This table even has a hidden compartment to hide some other party makers.

  1. Ok. I think this table will fit in my rig. Seriously! And so space saving… I think I could talk Dan into it. I just need to lead him to believe is something James Bond would own….🙂 Wish me luck!

    • Yes, very Bond…James Bond..Actually this is part of our collection. Stuff that’s for sale will be posted in the “for sale” page. Sorry if that was unclear. I need to update that page with other items. I’m still trying to get accustomed to blogging and that page is giving me some trouble. I’m a newbie blogger so bear with me🙂. If we ever sell the table though we’ll let you know first.

      • I have a black on white table like yours, my father bought it new, he’s passed & I can’t find the key. Could I impose on you? Could I get you to make a copy of your key, please?

      • Hi Dan. I don’t have a key either. Let me know if you track one down, as I’d love one as well.

      • Are all the keys for the grand servers the same? I have a key for mine that I would be willing to make a copy of to send to you and Dan. Let me know🙂

  3. Awesome table, they are a great conversation piece. I have the same one with a wood grain, I got it on locally e-bay about 10 years ago.

    That TV and BBQ grill are fantastic as well!

  4. Did you refinish this table, or does it come in this color combo?

  5. Thanks for the info. It is beautiful! I am looking to purchase one, so I am trying to figure out all the color combos it comes in. So far I have seen walnut top/walnut sides, walnut top/gold sides, black top/white sides and white top/walnut sides. Do you know if that is it?

  6. I have a walnut/walnut version of this table. It has been passed down through the family. It has needed some repair (the original casters broke off and we put on new ones -plus an additional for support). Also the gold leaf on the poles (?) needs work. I would love to sell it and am not sure how. It seems a sin to let it sit in the basement when someone could be showcasing it! Any recommendations on how to go about this? How much I should ask?
    Thank you SO much!!

  8. We have a white with gold side finish (we’re the original owner & it’s in mint condition) like the one on the World’s Fair ad. Bought it in the 1960s. For how much do you think we can sell it?

  10. I just recently scored one of these from an estate sale. Walnut version. Perfect condition – no scuffs, scrapes, chips, rope and wheels all there and perfect, etc. Even has the key! Got it for $150 – fastest I’ve ever paid for an item before they had a chance to change their mind or come to their senses! Not selling – new centerpiece of my family room.

  13. Hi. — I feel pretty lucky that I got this table at my local SPCA thrift store. The only problem is that 2 of the legs were missing. Boooo. Who does that? I was wondering if you had any suggestions on where I might be able to replace them? I live in Reno– and I have a huge mid century ranch that I am doing my best to take back to it’s glory days. I am the only poor person to EVER live in this monster house. There are some really amazing features to it. It has been fun (and challenging) to bring it all the way back… I hope to have it done by the time I go live in the clouds for real. Here in Reno, gosh, telling someone you have a mid century home will get you a “deer in the headlight” look most the time. If it doesn’t have poop on it in Nevada, the value must be low? In some ways– that is great because I can get amazing things for next to nothing– but getting parts? Not so much.

    I also feel pretty lucky to have found this site. I am one of the worst internet user that lives here on earth. I can barely open my email most the time. I appreciate all the help you can give me. Sue

  15. I recently purchased an original white and gold Grand Server at an estate sale in Manhattan, KS. Got a great deal on it, but it needs some restoration (e.g., new key, new pole, new rope trim, cleaning/restoration of surfaces). Know of any antique-restoration companies that specialize in restoring mid-century modern furniture, or know of any sources to consult when trying to restore a piece like this oneself? (For example, I’d hate to damage the surfaces when merely trying to clean them.) Any suggestions/advice would be appreciated by this newbie mid-century-mod collector!

      • If you still need a key: Grethel with Gre-Stuff (http://www.grestuff.com) was kind enough to have her original key duplicated at her local Home Depot and then mailed to me. The copy worked like a charm in my white/gold Grand Server locking mechanism, which is dated 1968. So I suspect that at least for Grand Servers made during that time period, the keys/mechanisms were mass-produced and are interchangeable and not particular to each Grand Server. Anyway, I’d be happy to pay Grethel’s kindness forward, and to duplicate my key-copy and mail it to you to try out, if you still need a key.
