Herb asks:

I have this rocker and a reg.chair like this rocker I was thinking of selling on Craigslist or what ever you think would be better but I don’t know what price to start with.


I want to sell them both fast. I will pay for the the chair and send photos after this appraisal.

I want to sell them fast so please give me a starting value a good value and a dirt cheep value.

Thank you,


AW says: This Stickley Brothers Quaint furniture is pretty popular right now and you should have no problem selling it fast in the right price range, what that is for you, only you can determine. I have 3 selling options to suggest, one as you mentioned is Craigslist, the other is eBay and the last is a good local auction house that sells antiques.

There is no need to pay for another appraisal, since they are a matched pair I can give you values for both of them here. (Provided of course, the other is in just as good condition as this one is.)

Date range: 1910-25

Retail value:  For the pair, $900-$1200, They are fairly equal in value, although some will prefer the rocker and others, not. They do hold more value as a matched pair.


Wholesale value: $450-$700
(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: $300-$500 (In my opinion, this set should not have to suffer a quick sale price.)
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: Stickley brothers, quaint furniture, mission oak, rocker, arts and crafts

Care and storage tips: I would not do anything do these. You’ve sent me other photos which I don’t have room to post here, but when you go to sell these, take good photos WITHOUT the cushions them.
