This is an art deco birdseye maple armoire and nightstand that date to the late 1920's to late 1930's.

The sites like 1st Dibs are unusually high for furniture and those are the companies that pay Google to come up first in searches, so I understand where that can be confusing if you are trying to compare prices.

Your set has a value of $300 to $400 for the armoire and $175 to $200 for the nightstand. You can ask more and negotiate down, of course, but those are the normal final selling prices for these pieces.

Some sites that I recommend are,,,,, Lushpad,, and if you want to sell online.
