I was wondering if you could just give me a ball park figure of the value on this bedroom set. It was my mom and dads and I am thinking of selling it but I haven't any idea of what it is worth. There is a headboard, dresser with a mirror and chest of drawers.

Thanks,
Lauri

Answer
This furniture is mid century in the danish modern style.  that it was labeled b p john makes it more salable in the California and Oregon areas.

i cannot offer a value on what i cannot see but the dresser would be in the 5-650$ range.

hope this helps.

if you post more pictures using the followup function i will give numbers on the remaining pieces.

thanks.

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.
