SET  
This set is available from an estate sale and I have been asked to make an offer.  The seller has no idea how old the pieces are - Just looking for an opinion.

Thank you!

Answer
this is 1920s-early 40 set in what most call duncan phyfe style.  more accurately it is federal and sheraton style.  some say the company operated 1898 till 1953.

table and 4 chairs would sell in a shop at 350/400 retail, china cabinet at 250 retail.  all depends on condition
