These Art Deco bedroom sets are collectible but the market right now is soft on these larger sets of 20th century furniture (and Victorian too). They are fairly common and show that in good condition with seven pieces to have an antique market value of###-##-####00. It is very confusing as there are some outlets trying to sell them for more but they are "selling" and may not beable to get that value as it is more than the market will bare right now. Here are a few examples of what the market is actually showing for these and a few higher sales that probably are closer to the true value but I wonder how long it will take until they will need to bring it down a bit. The best way to sell these will be Craigs list or a local outlet due to the shipping and handling issues. Auction houses are not bringing the values of online sales right now as collectors at auctions are looking for deals or rare early pieces.
This is an Auction House example:
A circa 1920's Art Deco bedroom set with hand painted panels. Tall chest, serpentine chest, night stand and bed.
