Thank you for the request here. In general, custom built furniture pieces are one-off or unique pieces because they are designed for the particular living space and with the owner's style in mind. The style here is loosely based on Japanese aesthetics and can fall under the category of 'Hollywood Regency'. This would sell for as high as $800 - $1200 on today's market. I recommend listing this for sale on chairish.com. They do not charge a listing fee and they take a 20% commission when the item sells. They are great because they help arrange the shipping. While you have this listed for offer on chairish.com you should simultaneously place it on Craigslist at the same asking price. On Craigs stipulate that this is pick-up only. That site is to free to list on and they do not take a commission on the sale.
Thank you for your patience. The sale value is based on present condition. I personally only sell as-is and let the buyer do as they please with the item. In addition, painting, to do it right, is alot of labor and expense.....spare yourself that, honestly :)
I would be happy to help you with any items in the future, however I only assess one item or matched set per question here.
For the phone, on this thread, it would be to discuss the item in question. For another item, I would need to see new photos before the call.
When you post a new question, please add "For Nora" or "Hi Nora" at the beginning of your question so as to ensure that I will be the one who answers your question for you.
The only items I do not assess for value are clocks, coins, watches, sewing machines, swords and firearms.
