We have a Murphy's cedar armoire wardrobe that is stamped 340 on the back. It is in good condition.
By Warren K. from Blue Springs, MO
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 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?
I have a Murphy cedar wardrobe-345. It is in excellent condition. Does anyone know the value?
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.
I have an armoire/wardrobe numbered 655. Any idea what it is worth?
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.
I just bought a 340 Murphy Cedar wardrobe online. It is is great condition. I paid $60.00 for it, but, they were asking $75.00 or more for it.
Does anyone know how old it is and what it originally cost new?
Where was it made? Thanks!
Murphy Furniture Co was in Jasper, Alabama
Anyone know the worth of this in excellent condition? It has original skeleton keys and cedar bag with it.
