Question
Duncan Phyfe Sofa
Duncan Phyfe Sofa  
Can you tell me anything about it's age and value of this Duncan Phyfe Sofa? I am considering selling it.

Thank you for your time!

Mallory

Answer
Duncan Phyfe or Sheraton style.  not a period piece.  but it is a nice one but these do not bring much money on the secondary market due to the cost of someone having it reupholstered to match their furnishings.   It appears that just the outer or presentation covering could be redone.  in that case the top number would be fair retail.  looks to be 1940 vintage

250-450 depending on the location of sale.

thanks
