I have what seems to be furniture form Gimbel Brothers,

Customer Question

I have what seems to be furniture form Gimbel Brothers, living room, and dining room, it seems that they sold Simmons furniture from about 1800's to the mid 20th century my furniture seems to fit the mid to late 1800's how do I authenticate it?
JA: I always love having an appraiser look at my stuff. Sometimes its turned out to be surprisingly valuable. Is there anything else the antiques appraiser should be aware of?
Customer: Well it's very ornately carved scrolls around the back of the his and her arm chairs, with inlaid carvings on the arms, the dining room buffet, and the china cabinet and dining room table are all made from hardwood I am not sure what kind, the i can do is send pictures.
