I am selling my dressers, I have no idea what they are worth. I am told they were built in the 1930s. The condition is fair, but they do have some scratches and discoloration

Hi Lorna,

While furniture produced by the Kindel Furniture Co. has always been built with
attention to quality, it wasn't until 1982 that the Kindel Furniture company was
selected to reproduce rare and important American antiques for the Winterthur
Museum in Delaware. I feel that your pieces were made in the late 1940's to
early 1950's, while not the best of design and overall form.

Today with the general lack of interest in more formal styles of furniture,
except for pieces like the Kindel reproductions from Winterthur, pieces like
yours are suffering in terms of re-sale value.

When also factoring in condition issues, I place a value of $225. to $250. for
the dresses.

Best Wishes,
