Hello I have a desk that was in an Episcopalian Church that is for sale it is very heavy it has dovetail drawers and beautiful fish carvings as a pedestal base I'm attaching a photo I am needing to know what you feel the price would be of such a piece.  I do have a couple more pictures if needed there is also a shield carving underneath the desk. Thank You Gina

Hi Gina,

While trying to study your photos,  it appears that there are missing drawers
and the finish looks to be in poor condition.

Value is always based on condition since restoration costs are high for
restoring pieces like this.  Also you need to take into consideration
the interest level for dinosaur style furniture.

As the desk sits I place a value of $200. to $250. for it.

Best Wishes,

As an example, quality furniture produced by leading manufacturers such as Baker, Kittinger, Kindel, Saybolt-Cleland furniture companies. I must have at least one photo for advice.
