From what I have seen on eBay, they are worth in the $75 range.

It is nice that you have had this pretty piece in the family for 50 years. That means they probably bought it new as I have it pegged as a late 1960s early 1970's piece.

This company was one of the big mid line furniture companies and made very sturdy products that would last and we are seeing now, they are lasting!

Their numbering system is bizarre and to me, has no rhyme or reason. Most people who sell these don't even bother with the number as it is meaningless to the general public. People want to know shape, condition, and wood type which is mostly how you will see them advertised.

This is an unusual piece and they don't come up for sale often. The still have some value and in most places (not everywhere since furniture sales are a supply and demand area), they sell (SOLD prices, not asking prices) around $50.

If you are in a high demand, low supply area, you may get a little more. Low demand, high supply, a little less.

Yours looks to be in nice shape which helps with the value.

Are you planning to sell it? I can offer some tips if you are.

Hi Pghgirl40 yes I am looking to sell it as I have recently moved and no longer have the room for it. It's sad I love it but it was between my great grandmother's secretary or the corner table. I would appreciate any tips you could offer. Thanks in advance

It is a lovely piece.

You don't mention where you are located, so my selling suggestions are for general, US sales.

If you have a Nextdoor.com group you can try to list it there or if you have Facebook search for local For Sale OR Trade (FSOT) or SWT (Sale Want Trade) groups and ask to join.

To find the Facebook groups put your town name in the FB search engine and start typing...like Pittsburgh FSOT, then Pittsburgh Flea, then Pittsburgh SWT (I hope you have as many as we do).

Pick 5-6 selling groups, read their rules, and ask to join. You will be notified when accepted. Some may make you answer questions. Follow their rules to the letter to remain in good standing.

Take a bunch of good photos from every angle -- best outside or with good light indoors.

Set your price (I say start high and take best offer). Write a brief description of exactly what you have. Include measurements and a a little history of the piece.

Post it (tell people you are cross posting, no holds--first come first serve, cash only, and offer to meet them at a local police department, fire department, library or other busy location.

Day time only. Always take someone with you...safety first.

Always check the person's profile so you know who you are meeting and if you have any bad feelings, you are not obligated to meet or sell to anyone.

As soon as it sells, you have to go back to each place you posted it and mark it sold. That is critical or people may continue to message you.


If none of the above appeals to you (I have done it and you will get some flakes and some crazies, but I have also had many successful sales) you can always find a local consignment or vintage shop and see if they will sell it for you. You will get a percentage of the sale and the best part is it is out of your house, no one comes to your house, no muss, no fuss, hopefully you get a check quickly when it sells.

Last two are if you do yard sales or sell at a flea market take it to sell there. Stage it nicely with a pretty vase of flowers and make it a focal point. Take the best offer.

Post back with how your sale goes!!
