QUESTION: Hello Robert,

I am needing to sell an old Victorian style chair and love seat. I don't know much about it but the tag on the bottom says Kimball Furniture Co. 1929.Can you tell me what a fair asking price would be? Fair to me and the buyer.

Thank you in advance for your time.

ANSWER: please use the follow up function and post a picture of the label

QUESTION: Label image

The date on the law tag is when the law making the tag nessary was put into place.

the furniture is from 1940-50.  Kimball and a couple of  others were in Montgomery as it says on the tag.  They all did the victorian reproduction.

in todays market the chair would sell fairly at 200-250 and the loveseat at 350-450.
keep in mind that condition is important.

hope this is what you needed.

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. 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.
