Question
Coffee Table #1
Coffee Table #1  

Coffee Table #2
Coffee Table #2  
We have recently acquired via inheritance an unusual coffee table along with several antique tables; but this coffee table is the one on which we are most interested in getting information. It has the Weiman stamp with the number 359-2300. We are moving very soon to another state and need to know if we need to take it to an appraiser and get a written appraisal for insurance purposes? The problem is that I do not think we have anyone here in, Lake Charles, LA that will do that. In other words is it worth finding someone to get a written appraisal? I appreciate your time.
Sincerely,
Patty Boyd

Answer
There were huge numbers of weiman tables made.  they do not bring high dollars and an appraisal benefits only the appraiser as they get paid when they hand you the paper.

if there is damage or loss, the appraisal will do little good.

retail in as shop 225.  replacement insurance value 450.

Expertise

In regards to American antique, vintage and collectible furniture I can help with wood identification, styles, age, periods, historical coatings, materials, techniques, repair, restoration, refinishing, and value. I do not study mid century and later furniture nor do I deal in lamps, and other smalls. robertsantiques@cox.net You may ask for values and I will give you current market values, I will not give you 'feel good' values. Understand that there are many factors that contribute to market value. If you want a feel good, unrealistic number, please call a local inexperienced appraiser. It is my desire to help you and in doing so I increase my knowledge as well. For that I thank you.

Experience

I have been in the antiques furniture and restoration business and in the sales of antique furniture for 40+ years and have continued my education in the trade attending workshops and seminars by various organizations, institutions, and private collectors.
