wakefield chair set heywood wakefield chairsCandace asks:

Please view the attached photos of my Heywood Wakefield chairs, table and ottoman. Cushions are green and not original.

Thanks.

AW says: Points for style and being a set. This is the later part of the arts and crafts golden period. The Heywood-Wakefield factory is about 20 minutes from me in Gardner MA. I’m luck to have seen and sold quite a bit of it over the years.
Date range:
circa 1925-30
$850-$1,100
(top price)

 

Retail value:

Wholesale value: $350-$425
(The midrange price you could expect to achieve at a well advertised live auction. The price that is most often realized)

Quick sale value: $150
The price your likely to get if you have to sell your item immediately and your prospective customer is aware of this.

Common terminology, nicknames, keywords: Modern bamboo furniture, Heywood Wakefield,

In most cases, I believe it would be beneficial for your to give the prospective buyer a link to this page, and to bookmark it via your favorite bookmarking service.
Care and storage tips: These hold up very well. Never to use oversize cushions in the seats as that will loosen joints over time.
