This looks like a Spanish style. In my area, sets like this are given away. No one wants brown furniture. You could try asking $300 and see if anyone wants it.

The style is either Spanish or India. They look similar and the designs are sort of the same to me. Not saying they are the same but to me they look almost the same.

If this is a 4 or 5 piece set you can try listing it for $500 and go down from there. List it locally because you do not want to have to ship this off to anyone.

I believe this to be the line called Bella Vista from the 1960s. It was very popular and meant to look unique and elegant and different than the run of the mill pieces of the time (the antithesis of mid century modern).

Today they are all over the place in value. It depends on where you are and the supply and demand for pieces like this in your town. Where I am, they sell for under $100, and must be pristine with no smells. I see them at the flea for flip projects under $30, but those are usually rough around the edges.

I suggest calling a few vintage stores in your town or the closest big city and asking if they sell the pieces and how much it would retail for in their store. That will give you retail value in your town.

People most likely will not pay retail value if you try to sell on your own, so you will need to price accordingly (lower), but it gives you a good starting point to allow negotiation.

It is hard to sell big pieces on your own if you don't have a way to get them to the new owner. I am a very experienced reseller and I delegate all furniture sales that I have, to consignment shops or to the cash on the spot dealers who have the capability to hold the pieces for a long time until the right buyer comes along and then, deliver it to the buyer.

Let me know what works for you and how your sale goes!
