Welcome to JustAnswer, I amCustomerand I will respond back as soon as I research your question.

Please look under a chair and under the table for any labels or marks there and let me see those marks by using the

I'm confused - what do I do to get an answer on my question?
Expert:  Rarewares replied 9 months ago.

My apologies, you did not add photos until 12:44am here on the East Coast US, so we missed each other.

The golden quarter sawn oak dining room set consisting of table with leaves

and eight chairs with upholstered seats and slat backs

has an insurance/replacement value of CAD8000.

The side board is a dark stained Jacobean style sideboard/buffet

from the 1890's period with a current insurance/replacement value of

CAD 1600.

To finish, I will need you to click the five stars at the top right

of your screen and hit the green submit button, thanks!
