I have 3 pair lined drape sets found in locked 50's time

Customer Question

I have 3 pair lined drape sets found in locked 50's time capsule home. Have never been hung. two pair of large sets for large picture windows and one small set for smaller window. They are the tropicanna print with a beautiful silver gray background, not white. brand new condition, pristine I would say. The small set are one 42" panel each with a length of 84 in. plus a 3in. hem. The large sets are the same length, and have 18 pinch pleats at the top and 1with 19 pleats. I have yards and yards with no hem wear, sun spots or fading. They are truly in new condition. They Evan have the original drapery hooks and they look new. I have done nothing to them...but I have no idea of value.I WOULD APPRECIATE YOUR HELP.
