Hi,

Could you please help in identifying the age and value of this Sligh armoire?
I have the bed frame, armoire, and dresser with mirror. The logo that's on the pieces does not match any that I found online.  The furniture has been in my family since it was new, but I don't know exactly when that was.  The furniture was originally sold painted, but years later my mom repainted it with an antique finish. That was at least 30 years ago.  
I've been told that I should try selling each piece together, but wanted to get your advise.

Thanks.

Answer
the label is different than those pictured online and in the grand rapids book but the style is a 1910 style but sleigh build the same style line for many decades so i must reserve the option to date this that after i see a picture of the back and a picture of the inside.

selling this set together is better than apart.  selling separate wyou might get left with a piece you have to give away for a low price.

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.
