With something like this you will have to make your own decision about what to offer according to how bad you want the tables.
Remember that a lot of tables you will see on line (that you may be looking at) may have to be shipped and that is an expensive addition to the initial cost.
If it were me, I would not offer more than $50 each and they would have to be in very good condition but then I am not in your city (location many times determines the true value of furniture).
You should base your offer on how much the tables mean to you as well as how badly the "seller" wants to sell the tables (money?).
Check out some stores that sell similar furniture.
I was hoping to get more information and possibly the value of this vintage coffee table and 2 end tables. I was told my grandmother may have purchased them in the 1960s. The pictures were sent to me and I have not been over there to look for a brand name.
I was hoping to get more information and possibly a value for this vintage French Provincial 3 cushion gold tufted sofa and matching accent chairs. Any information is greatly appreciated.
The complete set may go as high as $1,000 or more if presented in the right place (if they are in better than "good" condition).
I have this oval side table with some markings on the bottom, but I do not know the manufacturer or the value. Can you help me?
That marker does not look familiar to me. Is it just a triangle and the number?
My first thought is it is probably a store brand marking. Those are very hard to research as there are not a lot of good records kept on them...at least that I have found in my travels.
Most of the big name brands clearly mark their pieces because it added to their provenance.
Regency style pieces like this one are all over the board in value. I have seen people asking up to $700 for them in auction settings when pristine and with a name brand maker mark.
In the condition yours is in, you may (in the right market) fetch in the $100 range. Now where I am, it would be much less because there is large supply of these and little demand.
Furniture is all about supply and demand. Hopefully you are in a low supply, high demand place and people will pay more for your piece.
Best best is to talk to local furniture resellers in your town to get a feel for your specific market. Maybe one of them can consign it for you to get the best exposure for the piece.
Post back with an update! It is a neat item!
I am looking to find the value of this table and chairs and where/how best to sell the set. It's a 1950s mid century dining table with 3 leaves and 6 chairs. The manufacturer is Kent of Grand Rapids.
This company was in business from 1946 to 1975. This is a Danish modern set. It is not popular in my area. However, retro 1950s and 1960s sets seem to be in demand on eBay, with prices $500 and up.
I am just curious if my 1973 Thomasville bedroom set is worth anything or needs to be put in a yard sale?
Look under the table and chairs for markings. It is very hard to determine value if you dont know who made the set.
It is hard to assess a value without knowing the manufacturer. Look on the sides of the drawers or on the back.
I have. There was some kind of paper attached to the back but nothing left of it. Thanks.
19" tall kinda limits the type of table or chest it could be but about the right height for jewelry chest or a lace/handkerchief chest but the style doesn't quite seem appropriate as most of this type would not have legs and would just set on dresser or chest.
You can post a reply if you find out what your chest is called and maybe the value.
Thanks for the suggestions.
this looks like an antique of some kind but since it is not in pristine condition and looks to have had repairs it is hard to imagine an antiquarian would provide a real great value for it.
But you could probably find someone willing to give you at least $50 for it ecause it' is super cool looking
Thx. That's pretty much what I thought.
My mom is downsizing and we want to sell some of her old furniture. We are hoping you can help us with a fair price to ask? She has a 1930s Thomasville armoire, dresser, and nightstand.
Sorry I did not get pictures with the tops clean. :)
I'm looking to sell my sofa that I inherited. It seem to be a vintage piece. I have been looking around and it looks similar to Kagan serpentine sofas, but the legs are different. I have no idea what it is worth or anything about it. Help please!
I purchased this pie crust table for $20 with the intention to chalk paint it for my porch. It is nicer than I expected and I am now wondering if I should leave it original. Is there a way to tell the manufacturer/age and value? It is 32 inches in diameter and 28 inches high with a stamp of K 1030 on the underneath.
I have several old pieces of hand carved furniture. The artist or age is unknown, but it has had a lot of work put into it and is possibly an antique. I am curious of it's resale value. It has hand carved text in initial gothic c font which reads "gute nacht" in German.
What is a Mersman coffee table #6964 and a vanity by American Treasure by Drexel #G07-310-2 worth?
This Davenport couch was bought at auction in 1946. We still have the original receipt! We have no idea what its worth, but are looking to sell. Any thoughts? Thank you!
I'm seeing similar ones go for over $1,500. I'm in love with yours! I wish I could buy it!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
A similar age Davenport couch is going on Etsy for $1800. www.etsy.com/
