Antique Furniture/Antique Couch


I just submitted a question about the value of my empire period couch and missed the attach an image indicator. My apologies.

Hello Susan,

Thanks for sending the photo of your sofa in the Empire taste.

From what I can see, it is in good condition and with clean
fabric.  One would presume that it should have a higher value
than it actually does.

In looking at my results for recent sales of Empire Sofa's.
which range anywhere from, No Sale to $50. to an average of
about $225. and higher for the more important examples, I am
thinking that $200. to $250. is were the value lies in your

Best Wishes and good luck finding a buyer for it.
