Hello and welcome! My name is Doris.
I have been an antiques collector, dealer and appraiser for over 56 years.

The only two photos that came through at this end are of the highboy.

I need photos and approximate sizes of the other pieces plus any labels or marks indicating maker, etc.

You may need to use the macro function (flower icon) of your camera to get a good clear photo of the marks.

If you cannot get a good photo, then sketch the marks and take a photo of the sketch.

To send photos you may use the "reply to expert" in the blue box link on your reply page or the "paper clip" found in the toolbar you see on your reply page.
Please do not send in ZIP format. The jpg or jpeg format works best.

An explanation of this method can be found here:

I will be pleased to help you.

Kind regards,
