Headboard Carved Detail
Headboard Carved Detai  
I'm looking to sell this Heritage Henredon King Headboard.  It has a stamped number on the back #3503, which leads me to assume it may be more valuable.  It has minor wear on the lower left leg that would not be noticeable with the mattress. Is there a market for this and if so, where?   Is this just a $50-100 Craigslist listing?   I'd like to attach or show more photos but it seems I am limited to 2?  Thank you for your time and assistance.

Answer
being a king size we know it is not an antique but is a copy of a timeless design.

most furniture by established companies had a number stamped which could have been inventory number, stain, style or any one of several things.

i would say this should sell at 125-175.

the drape in the headboard is called a Lincoln drape.
same as seen on old Aladdin lamps

the wood is mahogany veneer on the headboard slab.

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.
