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

If you had already attached images to your initial posting, they are not showing for me here on my end.

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

I asked yesterday for what my chairs might be worth. I am sending a picture and a picture of the metal plack that says John Wanamaker Fine Furniture New York which is on the chairs. They look like Chippendales.
They are very sturdy and well built. They have been painted white. I got a table with them also. I don't think they belong to each other though. The table has claw feet on it. I have 4 chairs and only one with arms. So I have 5 in all. I am going to try to upload th pictures to you.Thank You

Hi Deborah,

I have not yet received images from customer support as of yet. I will certainly let you know when they do arrive to me.

On today's market, antique dining room chairs by John Wanamaker of NYC that have been re-painted white can sell for $25 - $45 per chair. The armchair can sell for up to $65.
