I have a Murphy cedar chest number 18 with the original price tag hanging in the chest that says $34. I am just wondering what the value of the chest is since I have received it from my grandmother and she said she bought it a very long time ago.

Go to ebay or worthpoint.com. The fact that it has the price tag will probably increase the value.

It does not appear that very many Murphy cedar chests are available but there are so many other good brands available that this may/probably reduces the value of your chest.

It will not be easy to find your exact chest number for sale or sold recently but maybe just seeing what older models are listing for will help.

Here is a #20 now listed on eBay (1-12-2017):

Here is a link that #18 sold for in 2015:

Large items are difficult to sell so most are offered locally on sites such as Craigslist, For Sale, and also on eBay but listed as local pick up only. Try looking at some of your local auction sites or even call a local auction dealer and ask about the current market price.

I am looking for information on when the Murphy 86 school desk was manufactured and sold. I have one that was in an old schoolhouse.

I have an old school desk but could never find out very much about it so my answer may not help you very much.

There are several style/kinds of old school desks (as you will find if you just Google "old/vintage/antique school desks") and since you did not submit a photo it seems you may have to do some research yourself.

I cannot find a brand/name on my desk so at least you have that much. There are some desks up for sale on eBay so you may be able to find one like yours or at least get some info on value of this type of item.

I also had a web site from my original search that may help:

I have a table and four chairs. The markings say Murphy 336. Can you tell me how much it is worth? It has two leaves and also the sides flip down.

Antique furniture value relies heavily on original finish, current condition, location, quality etc. You can contact antique dealers in your area, online antique appraisers, etc., for possible values. For example, EBay currently has a Murphy office chair for $95.00.
