hi there, 1st thank you for answering a previous question on a rocking chair, maybe you could give me a direction on these 3 awesome stools I found, S bent bros stools, have stripped paint off & sanded to this point, trying to sell unfinished so buyer can choose color pallet, what info can you please give me & there worth?
thank you kara

Answer
I would hand sand them more since you have already started.  Try to get the color even.  I would then recommend you put a clear finish on them, no staining.  use shellac if you can.  brush on a couple of coats then lightly rub with 320 grit no fil paper. wax after.  let shellac dry a few days before rubbing.

buy seal coat shellac.  it is a dewaxed 2 pound cut of shellac.  use a one inch gold taklon brush.  clean up with denatured alcohol.

if you do that then ask 125 each.  as is 45-50 tops

hope this is what you needed

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.

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.
