I have a Drexel girls bedroom set (early 1970's) and it's in mint condition (twin 4 poster bed, nightstand, dresser with mirror, tall dresser, corner desk with hutch). What is an estimated value if I'm original owner? Thank you!
Nothing, just trying to find pricing estimate as I had a son and saved it for a daughter that never came. ;) I have several more pictures available of all the pieces. My parents bought it for me brand new when I was a child (I'm now 44).
Hi my name is Glenda,Thank you for choosing us for your Appraisal needs.
Is this the White and Gold Set?
No it is the green/white set. I attached a picture, did it not come through? Also, it may not be Drexel, I can't find a mfg name anywhere, that was the only thing I found similar.
No the image did not come through, if you like you can send it again.

Got it, thanks. I will go see what I can find. It looks like Drexel or Basset.
Thanks Glenda! Let me know if you need more pics!Julie
Drexel did make the Bedroom Set in the green. I believe yours is Drexel, it is currenlty estimated to sell on the secondary retail market for an average of 1400.00-1800.00, depending on where it is for sale at. These will typically sell higher in an Antique Shop or Private sale compared to an auction. If you are thinking of selling, I would check with your local Antique Shops in the area to see what yours or one like it would sell for or has sold for. As antiques and collectibles are subject in selling price to different areas across the country..( Larger Metropolitan Areas bring higher prices then Smaller Cities. )
You might consider selling this on Craigslist, it is a free listing site, where you list in your local area or a large city near you. When it sells the buyer picks it up, so there is no shipping..If I can be of any further help, please feel free contacting me, if there is a problem with my answer please feel free contacting me before leaving a negative feedback, any problem can be resolved.
New Rating System, Explanation:Please Rate Me Only, not the Website.
I am a appraiser who is a user of the site to answer questions for customers who come here. I do my very best to offer you the most current values and any information I can find for you.
A good feed back rating lets JustAnswer/ Pearl know I did my job and therefore I get credit and compensation for my work. At no additional cost to the customers! So please leave a good feed back 3 stars & up or 3 smiley faces & up, not "Helped a little" or "I expected more" or "Bad Service", "Poor Service" I am not sure which one may be used ) it is very much appreciated. Unless you do not feel a good feedback is warranted, then please let me know what else I can do for you, ( if anything ) to help get a good feedback by, clicking on the " Continue the Conversation Link". My good rating is very important to me and something I strive to keep.
And if you would like to use me on any further questions. It works much better putting my name ( Glenda ) in your question , then I will be sure to get it. Requesting me expires in just a short time.
It has been a pleasure working for you, I look forward to it again.
Thank you so much
