This auction was from 2010. It was estimated as between $75 and $100.

Value can only be determined by recent sales of exact or very, very similar items as well as where the items are sold (where located in US) and I have not found any recent sales of anything similar. I did find several closed auctions for several years ago but did not find an actual sale price.


There are some twin brass beds listed on eBay and other sites for $300-$700 but no evidence of any sales in any recent months.

These would be costly to ship so you may have to try and locate something similar that has sold in your area. You can check local sale sites (Craigslist, Facebook Marketplace, USA4Sale and other sites) to see how many are listed in your area to get a feel for how rare or how plentiful they are.

Your best bet, especially if you wish to sell in short time, would be to find a medium to large auction house and take your beds for them to sell.
This will cost you some of your profit (if sold) but that may be where you will receive the most even then.

You can also ask for a free appraisal and that knowledge may help you sell for more money but it may not help you sell them quickly (or at all).


If you decide to ask for an appraisal, you will need better pictures (without the springs) as well as measurements and also any information you have concerning age, etc.

Hopefully, other members will have better suggestions so be sure to check back.
