A online search produced many cedar wardrobes and a few Murphy wardrobes, one offered for $300. You can search on EBay and other retail sites for more price information. You can also contact an auction house for possible value at auction.

We have a Murphy red cedar chest with a mirror on the inside and a drawer at the bottom. The date on it is March 23, 1960.


I was just wondering it's value and if it's a good piece of furniture. I don't want to sell it. I was just wondering about a few more facts that could be told.

I have a Murphy wardrobe 240. It is all original, including 2 skeleton keys, shoe rack, and a cedar bag for keys. There are no cracks or splits, but there are some minor scratches. It is in beautiful condition. How much should I ask for it?

Why not check Google, Amazon, e-bay, Craigslist and Kijiji? See if anyone else has anything like it? Perhaps also talk to or call a few antiques dealers?


Then, if no one can offer information about probable value, why not set a price for it yourself. Start high, you can always accept an offer. Good luck!

A thing is worth what someone will pay for it in the current market. I did an internet search. Someone on Craigslist is asking $120. Asking doesn't mean he'll get that much.

Prices vary based on the demand and where you live. Your best option would be to ask a local antique dealer in your area, or an estate auctioneer.

I would check eBay often for a few months. You will get a good idea of what these pieces actually sell for, if they sell at all.
