Customer Question

We have 4 Weiman dining room chairs that were left when we moved into our house. Would love to know how much they are worth. They look like carved wood. Don't know how old they are?

My name is***** have been dealing in and appraising furniture for over 40 years, and I can help you with this. These are circa 1990 Faux Bois French for "false wood," faux bois is a fitting name for items that appear plucked from the forest but are actually made of carved wood, cast stone, cast iron, or cement, or are painted to have a woodsy look. Although earthy and rustic. Your chairs are interesting as they have a rustic log look mixed with Louis XVI French style. These would sell for $100-200 each at auction and insurance value is $350 each.

Thank you,
