larger sewing stand  

smaller sewing box
smaller sewing box  
I have inherited 2 sewing stands.  I am attaching photos of each of them.
The smaller one is a table-top stand, with 2 drawers.
The larger one is a floor stand (quite heavy stand).

Would you know what era these are from?  Also, I am considering selling the floor stand.  Do you have an idea as to what I should charge?

Thank you, Maggie

PS  I am attaching larger photos this time.

Answer
please send multiple views to my email and include the original post so i know what i am looking at.

all surfaces including underneath and inside

thanks for the photos

both are from teh 1910-20s.

the stands would sell retail in a shop at 125$

the floor model is the more unusual and should sell easily in a retail setting.

i hope this is what you wanted to know.
