Hi There~
My name is ***** ***** I am here to help with your question.
At your convenience, please send photos.
When evaluating an item, photos are essential to helping me come to a correct assessment.

I look forward to seeing the images. If you are unable to send photos right away, that is fine – there is not a time limit here.

Hello,
Thank you for the images, however I only assess one item or matched set per question here.
If you would like to continue, please choose one and let me know.

Let's start with the first one.
Expert:  Nora replied 2 years ago.
Hello,
Okay, I will start with the first one.
Is this for a real estate appraisal?
~Nora
Customer: replied 2 years ago.
Just for my own edification. I would like to sell it.
Expert:  Nora replied 2 years ago.
Ok, thank you for the additional information.
Do you know if there are any maker names on this and the age of this approximately?
~Nora
Customer: replied 2 years ago.
I did not see a name. Not sure where that may be. No idea on the age.
Expert:  Nora replied 2 years ago.
Hi There,
Without a maker name or estimate of age, I will have to opt-out.
Your question will open again to all the experts. If someone knows the answer they will post a response to you here. You do not need to re-list your question and this does not cost you extra.
I will not be able to respond back after opting-out.
I do hope you find the information that you seek.
Sincerely,
Nora

Hi, my name is*****'m a certified appraiser, and I'd be happy to help. From the photos provided, these appear to be fairly recent 20th century pieces. I believe 4582 and 4584 match in style (different sizes), and 4581 is different, is that correct?
Customer: replied 2 years ago.
Yes you are correct.
Expert:  AppraiserJM replied 2 years ago.
Thank you.
Unfortunately, the resale market for contemporary chandeliers is very poor.
Because fewer and fewer homes use chandeliers, and because you are largely limited to a local market (hard to ship), you can only expect to recoup a tiny fraction of an original purchase price.
I would estimate resale on the two silver-metal examples together, at around $1,000, and the glass-arm example at around $750.
Sincerely,
Jennifer
