The price depends heavily on where you live -- both from market demand and whether you include shipping or delivery. This piece actually looks a little newer than 1920, and there are condition issues: a smaller mirror would have been a top left originally, and the finish seems uneven. So, assuming someone will need to put some money and elbow grease into restoration, I would suggest starting at $100 in today's economy.

Boutiques love these for displaying goods, and young people are attracted to the vintage aspect and uniqueness. If you can't get the price you want but need to offload it, please keep community theaters in mind: this would be a great piece to establish the time period of a play and the working class of the characters.

A lot depends on its condition and who manufactured it. Look for a manufacturer's mark on the bottom, underneath, or on the back.

The more expensive ones are going for more than $700.

The hat box door makes it extra special!! It is on the small size which could be a selling point. The value is regional. Start high and take best offer...where I am high would be $500 and best offer could be as low as $75, and I would take it.

Best way to sell this is through a consignment store or antique store. You will get a percentage, but not have to worry about people coming in and out of your house. Post back how your sale goes!

The price of Antique all wood chifforobe / wardrobe with original mirror on ebay is US $800 www.ebay.com/.../124745548338

But is not easy to sell such furniture as shipping is expensive. Sellers choose Local Pick Up Only. Therefore, the price is highly dependent on the demand in your area.

I found a similar Antique Armoire Wardrobe with Two Mirrored Doors 41 1/2" x 18 1/2" x 71", Dovetail drawers, missing some hardware, no key, missing some trim on small mirror door, Local Pick Up Only.

Your chifferobe is in very good condition. Is the mirror original?
If yes, then the price is high. But focus on the demand / prices in your area.
