Alicia asks: Here is the 3rd item I would like to have appraised
AW says: As mentioned before this is in the same general age range as the previous two items you’ve sent to have me appraise. This most likely is a little bit later than the other two pieces from the styling and the thinner frame.
I don’t know who has reupholstered your furniture, but they’ve done a wonderful job!
Date range: 1890-1910 $550-$700
Wholesale value: $250-$300
(The mid range price you could expect to achieve at a well advertised live auction. The price that is most often realized)
Quick sale value: $175-$200

Care and storage tips: Even though many of these old Victorian pieces are on casters, never drag them across the floor if you can help it. Many a time the caster has gotten caught in a crack and a leg will get ripped off or damaged.
