Question
Virginia House hutch
Virginia House hutch  
My mother is going into a nursing home and we do not have the faintest idea ow to describe this hutch in order to sell it. All mother told us was that it is a colonial Virginia House hutch. Is she correct? If so, what is the best way to describe it so we can sell it. Also, please furnish fair market value for this piece. Thank you in advance for your help.

Answer
Check for a label and it should be described in a selling ad with the wood pine, measurements, and described as follows; Reproduction vintage Pennsylvania Dutch Cupboard with two wood framed glass upper doors over a base with one drawer over two doors.

it is not an antique and is newer than what i buy and sell but it is still a good piece.  a reproduction of and earlier Pennsylvania Dutch Cupboard

selling price will be 6-700$

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.
