Question
Kuchins "ColorKist" Dinette
Kuchins "ColorKist" Di  
This set has been in my family since it was new.  Has original finish with "original emblems" and is in OK shape.  I would appreciate an opinion of value and would like to know if there is a market for it even though I only have 3 chairs.

Answer
having an odd number of chairs doesnt help in selling, most like 2 4 6 or 8.  so when selling you will have to price two chairs a give the third.  so sell the three at 75-100.  Table at 150-200 depending on condition.  There is not much market for these as I have unfortunately found out of late.

However being made 1930-40 it should have appeal.

hope this helps

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.
