What’s it worth? Appraisal of antique parlor set

Dear Sir

I have enclosed pictures of a 5 piece parlor set that has been in our family since at least about 1920 but it may be older.  I came from central California.  I believe it is made of California oak but this is just an assumption.  It has been reupholstered. I am not interested in selling it  but may donate it to a historic home. That is why I am curious about the set’s worth. 

Thank you,


AW says: Hey there Fred! Whether or not this is California Oak is tough to say, but I believe that’s irrelevant to the price. This is a turn of the 20th century golden oak set, and what I really like about it is that the set if finished with acorn finials atop the support posts.

It has applied carvings on the back, and of course, it’s been re-upholstered.

  • Retail value for the set: $700-$850
