Hello

What a great rocker. Great Victorian Rocker, around 1910-15. Is this marked with a makers mark?

Customer: replied 1 year ago.
I'll have to check it tomorrow. I'm babysitting for my grandson.

Ok, thank you

Customer: replied 1 year ago.
There's not any type of makers mark on the rocker.
Expert:  Glenda B. replied 1 year ago.

Hello
Thank you for the information.

The Antique Victorian Rocker, Hand Carved, looks to be Rose or Fruit Wood, has an estimated value on the current market for an average of $1***-**-****.00, depending on the condition and where it is for sale at. These will typically sell higher in an Antique Shop or Private sale compared to an auction. If you are thinking of selling, you might want to check your local Antique Shops in the area to see what yours or one like it would sell for or has sold for, then you can decide to sell online or locally.
.
Keep in mind that not all estimated values are obtained, your geographic area plays a big role in what prices can be obtained. If you plan on selling this I would list this for sell on the internet where it will have the largest shopping market. There are some great sites you can sell from. You can sell in your local area or a larger city near you with Craigslist, it is free, and when they item sells the buyer picks it up.
.
You can sell on Etsy, which is a great place to sell from, you list Vintage Items, they can stay until they sell. Much like having a little store online. There is also Rubylane, which is a more upscale site where people sell more expensive items. There is also Tias and GoAntiques, which is on the same scale of Rubylane. There is Amazon Market Place, ArtFire and of course Ebay. All of these sites get you a lot of World Wide exposure and bring the best traffic. They are all great! If you sell to a dealer, antique shop or resell shop you can expect to get about 30-40% of what it is worth since they have to resell the item.

If you have any further questions or problem about your answer, please reply to me before deciding to leave a negative rating, which does effect my job.

Dear Glenda,
Thank you so much for the information. I wanted to let you know that I am going to cancel my membership, but it certainly has nothing to do with you. We don't really have any more antiques that we are curious about. We may pop up at a later date if we should acquire more antiques. Thank you for all of your help. Nancy

Hello Nancy

I totally understand, if you do not mind waiting until after the first I would appreciate it, when a customer cancels, they take away all the money they paid out to the expert for that month. If you have already canceled it do not worry about it.

Hope you have a great Halloween!
