Richard,

That is ok I know this one, it is my book.

.

The 1960 Sligh Furniture Chest of Drawers with Floral Design has an estimated value on the secondary retail market for an of average of $575.00-700.00, depending on the condition and where it is for sale at. The company was founded in 1880 by Charles Sligh and headquartered in Grand Rapids, Michigan. Over the years, the company has pioneered new manufacturing techniques and developed innovative product features that make its designs uniquely functional and aesthetically beautiful. With an unmatched level of craftsmanship, Sligh is one of the industry's most respected brands.

.

The American Society of Furniture Designers established the Pinnacle Awards program in 1996 to recognize outstanding home furnishings design. Sligh products have earned three coveted first-place awards in the home office category and three first-place awards in the home entertainment category. In addition, the company holds a number of design patents for functionality and ergonomics that have been incorporated into its products.

.

Today, Sligh is a part of the Lexington Home Brands family, whose portfolio of respected brands includes Lexington, Tommy Bahama, XXXXX XXXXXnk Trading Co. and Aquarius. The company's product assortment is the most comprehensive in the industry, offering distinctive home furnishings for every lifestyle and every room of the home.

.

These will typically sell higher in an Antique Shop or Private sale compared to an auction. If you are thinking of selling, you might want to check 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. )

.

So be sure to check your local area. This will give you an idea of what it goes for in your area, then you can decide to sell locally or at one of the online markets.

.

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 rating of one of the top 3 smiley faces Smile lets JustAnswer/ Pearl know I did my job, this is the only way I am paid and credited for my time, at no additional cost to the you. A good feed back rating ( not, "Bad Service" or "Poor Service" ) 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.
