I have a Broyhill 1970's 7 piece oak dining room table made by Lenoir Chair company. There is 5 side chairs and 1 arm chair; table is 72" long with a 12"leaf; and 42" wide. The table has minimal damage (3heat spots on top of table and the chairs are missing the decorative knobs that came with them)

Can you advise me as to whether or not this is an antique or what the worth might be? Also, what places that I might sell these items to.



Hi Cheryl,

With your first sentence you answered your question regarding if your pieces
are antique.  First thing to remember is that with antique furniture, they
need to be 100 years old, or older.

As for value, considering the issues that you mentioned, which I am unable to
see, your chairs are worth $25. to $35. apiece and the table at $100. to $125.

You did mention 7 pieces, so, since I am not seeing the other two pieces, I am
going to assume the other pieces are a china cabinet and a server which would
have a value of $225.and $150. respectively.

Best of luck with them.
