I have found several on Ebay that sell for the high end at $200.00. They key with any Antique is the condition and what the collector wants. If you sell this to a dealer, then you are looking at a quarter of the estimated value. Here is the link where you can view the ones that are for sale: http://shop.ebay.com/i.html?_nkw=antique+wicker+chair

Antique Wheelchair Wood Wheel 1880's Chair Cane Wicker Excellent example of an early wheelchair.
These are the ones I have found so far. Joan
I will opt out an see if another Expert can assist you. Joan
Basically the value is what a buyer will pay. I have seen from $200-$450. If the chair had documented history like belonging to FDR, then the value would be much greater. That is the problem with antiques. The value is what the buyer will pay. Joan
I appreciate your time,but I know all you've showed/told me.Thought you could
tell me something I didn't know.I'm not being a smart aleck.
Perhaps you could give me info on another antique I don't know about???
Hello - Thank you for your understanding. The ranges that Joan provided are really helpful insight as to what the value is to an early wheelchair. These are old and unique but not collectible, so looking to what the market will bare is not a bad way to figure out the value.
As for the Pepsi radio this could be another situation. The 1920's were a difficult and transisitional time for the company. from 1923-1928 the Pepsi-Cola Company went into bankrupcy and was sold to a North Carolina company, Craven Holding Corp. Roy C. Megargel, a Wall Street broker, bought the Pepsi trademark, business and good will from Craven Holding Corporation for $35,000, forming the Pepsi-Cola Corporation.After five continuous losing years, Megargel reorganizes his company (1928) as the National Pepsi-Cola Company, becoming the fourth parent company to own the Pepsi trademark in only a few years.
I cant find when they distributed these radio's but they relate to what was going on - they most likely are c. 1928 when they are getting back on their feet.
Soda advertising radios were fairly common. I find in books early Dr. Pepsi and Coke, of course, but none of Pepsi. As well, I find 184 Pepsi advertising radios sold at online auction in the last few years...none are early. This says to me that what you have is fairly rare. The earliest Dr. Pepsi radio lists in a 2010 Kovel's price guide for 1700.00 I think this is the range that you should consider for your item and its novelty.
I hope this helps. Dori
Ok,I'll try Craig's list.Already tried E-bay.Sentimental value is worth more than $200.
My great great grandmother used it.I know sentimental value means nothing.Thanks,Gary
Okay thanks,I most likely will end up keeping it.$200 isn't worth the family history.
You've been very helpful.Gary
