Dining Set Sign In/Join

I just bought this dining set from Craigslist and I am interested to learn more about it. While value is obviously interesting to know I am more interested in age and other details. I was told that it was purchased at a barn sale in 1978 from an elderly lady that said she received it as a wedding gift (don't know when). It's in pretty good shape and the table has a pop-up leaf. It appears to be burled walnut on the top...not sure about the legs. Speaking of the legs, they are shaped in an interesting way. I'm not well-versed in antiques...I just bought it because I thought it was nice and it was only $125 for the set. If anyone has any opinions on the piece I would love to hear them. Based on a little research I am leaning towards 1930's due to the Art Deco look of it. Thanks everyone!
