cand seat and back lincoln style rocker from 1890

second chair is a cane seat dining chair.  1890


what did you want to know?

QUESTION: How much do you think I could see them for?  The one has holes in the cane the other is in pretty good condition.

Answer
to replace the cane would cost about 2$ per hole counting the holes in the wood around the outside of the back and seat.  close to 350$/400

that being said,

rocker 45-65
chair 30-45

condition is everything and single chairs do not sell for much.

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.
