The first photo came through, thank you very much.

Are there any damages to the three of those pieces?

Best,

Here is one of the photo.

From the photo your side tables and your hall stand with mirror would have been based on antique designs from the 19th century, but their production date would have been in the midst of a revival period in the mid 20th century.

The Hall stand with mirror would have a resale value of 250-300SUD. The side tables would value between 55-70USD each in excellent condition.

I hope this information was helpful to you today.

Best of luck with your vintage furniture.

Any feedback you can leave for my service would be much appreciated.

Thank You,

Frank

Hi Steve,

From what I can see in the photos you have a multitude of framed prints.

If you would like indivdual appraisals on each piece, you would need to open a new question and I can get to work for you on the pieces in question.

If you are looking for just a synopsis, I can handle that here.

First should I sale these items though Craig's list or do you know someone that I can take them too. Yes I would like an appraisal on each one unless there is a way to sale all of them at one time.
Thanks

Hey Steve,

From what I can see, there does not seem to be a whole lot of value there. Lots of prints dating from the 50's and 60's.

You could sell the pieces as a lot in a local auction house who would be able to give you a value for the pieces as a lot.

You could also try selling the lot on a website like ebay.com

You most likely will see between 250-350USD for the lot "as is", but if you would lie to open up new questions for each piece, I can get evaluations completed on each.

Thank you for any feedback you can leave for my service today on this question.

All the best,

Frank
