Carving Close up
Carving Close up  
I would like to have a better idea of the value of my sofa before selling -- or deciding to keep.

I purchased it believing it to be a French "antique".

I know the style is out of date and I haven't ripped it open to see whether it's arms are carved and in ok condition.  

Would this affect the value?

Thanks for any info.

Answer
Hi Jill,

Your sofa appears to be from the 1950's and not antique due to its adaptation form.
Since it is not made to an accurate reproduction of an antique form it has an adverse
effect on the value.
I place a value of $100. to $175.

Best Wishes,
