Definitely no structural damage to anything. The server has some inlaid missing on bottom shelf. Minor I would say. Some of the front handles are not attached to their plates. I have them and need some soldering I would think to reconnect.
Thanks for helping. Bob

Hey Bob,

Thanks for getting back to me.

Your tiger oak dining set would have been produced by Himebaugh Bros in Jamestown, NY circa 1910's.

Taking into account the condition you would be looking at a resale value for the Mission Style set somewhere between 2200-2600USD if you were selling the set yourself.

In a retail shop you maybe closer to the 3,000-3,400USD range. And if you were going to sell at auction you would be closer to 1200-1500USD.

The Mission style does have quite a few collectors behind it, but the big ticket pieces are usually coming out of the old Grand Rapids/Western New York producers(Stickley) . This is a solid set, but in a down furniture market may be tough to sell as a whole set if you were interested in moving it all at once.

Consignment with a local shop may be the best way to go if you are facing the move soon.

I hope this information was helpful to you today.

Best of luck with your vintage dining set.

Any feedback you can leave for my service would be much appreciated.

Thank You,

Frank
