Question
Umbrella Stand
Umbrella Stand  
I want to sell my mothers umbrella stand but have no idea what it is worth or how to describe it.  Stand seems to be in very good condition.  Can you please help me?

Answer
a quarter sawn oak mission style umbrella or cane stand.  from around 1910-20.

in a store it would price at 250, you cannot expect to get retail from home.  !00 would be fair.

I have to ask, why would you sell your moms stand?  you will spend the money then you will not have the stand or the money.

hope this is what you needed.

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.
