I Happen to Have a Dry Sink That I Believe is Close to 100 Years old Per My Grand Father - I Am Looking to Sell It & I am Looking for the Dry Sink Value & How Old the Dry Sink maybe is & Any Other Information You Can Enlighten Me With & Perhaps Anyone Who May be Interested in it - If You Need More Pictures Please Let me Know & I Am More Then Happy to Send Then - I Can Be reached At  or  - Than you so much for your time - David

Answer
This is not an old dry sink.  original dry sinks were early 1800s, this is a mid 20th century reproduction at the earliest, 1960-70s.

as such I really do not know what it would sell for as i deal in antiques.

this doesnt make it a bad piece just not with the value an original one would have.

thanks
hope this helps

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.
