Customer Question

Customer: Dave,
JA: Thanks. Can you give me any more details about your issue?
Customer: My grandparents had 6 antique chairs that have a black leather seat and a label that says Murphy Chair Co. Detroit and what I assume is the model number 380. The chairs are in good shape wood wise, but the finish is not good on a couple and the leather seats are cracking on a couple and sagging. We are wondering what they are worth and if we should try to keep them as original as possible.
JA: OK got it. Last thing — JustAnswer charges a fee (generally around $18) to post your type of question to Antiques Experts (you only pay if satisfied). There are a couple customers ahead of you. Are you willing to wait a bit?
Customer: Yes
JA: OK. Now I'm going to take you to a page to place a secure deposit with JustAnswer. Don't worry, this chat is saved. After that, we will finish helping you.

In order for me to properly assess what you have I will need to see images and clear, in-focus close-ups of the label.

Please send the photos at your convenience. There is not an extra charge to provide more pictures here.
