QUESTION: I am looking to sell this dining room set and would like to know what it's value is.

It has a dining room table, 6 chairs, one is an arm chair, a buffet, and a china cabinet. On the back of the 2 big pieces is the following info: 6120, the piece that it is, i.e. buffet, and MHY. The seat covers have been redone. 2 of the 3 leaves are warped, I think it's due to the way they had been stored. I would say overall the condition of the set is good.

I have taken numerous photos. If you would like to see more please let me know.

Thank you in advance for your help.


ANSWER: use the followup function and post two pictures of the rest of the set.  I cannot evaluate if i cannot see.

QUESTION: here are pictures of the china cabinet and the underneath of the table. I will send additional photos.

retail in shop pricing per piece would be variable based on the actual condition of the surfaces and assuming a sound structure, no repairs needed other than cleaning and waxing.  Warped leaves cannot be straightened easily if at all.

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.
