Answer
Hi Laurel,


What you are looking for as to a date for your pieces is approximately the 1920's.

The Jacobean style was all the rage back then and most furniture companies were
producing this style until the 1930's when Colonial Revival became the trend.

As well built as it is, it is difficult to sell in todays marketplace. I value each
piece at $200.

Best Wishes,
