I took the time to read all of Robert's remarks regarding covered chairs and some of his remarks on wood furniture. Very educational reading and to the point. I am very pleased with his open and frank answers to my questions rather my items are worth alot of money or rather they are not. That is the way I saw his write ups that I spent time studying. He give good and educational answers. A real professional. Thanks for your help[ Robert, If I need to know something else it will be you I come to.|
Answers by Expert:
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. firstname.lastname@example.org 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.
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.
