I am donating a Bassett cherry china hutch to the Salvation

Customer Question

I am donating a Bassett cherry wood china hutch to the Salvation Army. For tax purposes, could I please get an estimate of value. I bought it in 2003, original owner 84"H x 62"L x 18"W. It is in perfect condition but too large for my new home and most folks that have come by to take a look at it.

Hello,

For tax purposes, the value of your Bassett 2003 cherry wood hutch with three doors and glass doors is $600.00.

You might also consider contacting your local auction house and consigning it to them. They would pick it up, sell it, then you would get a check 14 to 45 days later minus the 15 to 20% commission. You can find a local auctioneer by putting "auctioneer in *your nearest large city*" .
