Question
Craddock hutch table chairs
Craddock hutch table c  
I had submitted a question earlier but you asked for a picture. I am trying to determine approx how much the set is worth. My parents got it for a wedding gift.

Answer
mid century items are coming into the collector arena but the prices have not risen appreciably yet.

i have to guess at the table and chair form but i am pretty sure i can extrapolate what they look like from the picture.

in what is referred to as 'estate condition' meaning used and cared for but not ready to go into another home without some attention it would be priced in a retail setting at 300 for the china, 40 each for the chairs and about 350 for the table.

having this refinished or even paying someone to clean it up prior to sale will not reap more profit.  however, if you were to do some cleaning, mild cleaning it might help for the visual presentation.

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.
