Hi Maureen-
I have been able to find out quite a bit of info on the company, but value seems to be objective on nearly all items manufactured by this company. The value of the item will increase if you find a buyer who has a sentimental attachment.

The Paris Mfg. Co made nice wood & runner sleds, skis, home furnishings toys and other household items. Paris Manufacturing became Paricon Inc. in 1978 and is still in business, making winter toys. You may be familiar with their Flexible Flyer line.
I'm sorry I can't give you more precise info. Good luck!
