Customer Question
Hello. I have some antique...
Hello. I have some antique or vintage furniture, home decor, and costume jewelry and am wondering the best way to get appraisals and to eventually sell the various items. I've attached one picture of a 5 piece bedroom set. Can you provide an appraisal value and some guidance on steps I should take to sell my many items?

From what I can see in the pictures your bedroom set is mid 20th century reproduction based off of late 18th and early 19th century designs that include Sheraton, Hepplewhite and Empire influences.

This is a common component of American furniture constructed in the mid to early 20th century, as nuances from these periods were in favor with many buyers who owned old pieces their families handed down.

If you were to attempt to sell the set yourself using a local listing or a craigslist ad, a realistic fair market value would be somewhere in the(###) ###-####SD range.

In a retail shop you could as much as double that value. Which is why I would recommend a possible consignment of the furniture to a local resale shop if you are having trouble selling the set yourself.

Furniture can sometimes be a burden to ship or to move which makes it tough for a private seller to sell it on their own.

Antique Expert: Frank, Antiques and Collectibles Researcher replied 2 years ago

The consignment, though you are paying a fee, would enable you to get a higher price and not have to worry about shipping costs or moving the pieces.

Thank you Frank. I have questions about the service offered. I have a number of decorative home items and antique costume jewelery. What is the best way to use your services? For the jewelery for instance, do I need to submit for an appraisal piece by piece?
Antique Expert: Frank, Antiques and Collectibles Researcher replied 2 years ago

For that number of pieces I would recommend using a monthly subscription, it would be the best bang for your buck. You would need to open a new question for each item or set of items, Lets say you have a matching set of rings, earrings and necklace, that would be a a part of one question.

Thank you again for any feedback you can leave for my service today.
