Your mid-century rosewood dining room set consisting of table and eight chairs, china cupboard,

large and small sideboard would have a value of $1200 to $1500.00 retail.

You can also go to invaluable.com or liveauctioneers.com and search their directory for an auction house near you and consign to them.
