Rarewares, I'm still waiting for your appraisal/opinion of the 1930's Donald Deskey AMODEC 4-piece bedroom suite.
You have pictures on my submittal/question dated 10/30/16. What can you tell me about the value or marketability of the suite?
Thanks, *************@**.**.***

If you see my last message above from 10/31, I did not receive the photos.

You listed the file paths instead of the photos by mistake, so I need you to read this link below and add them again using the instructions.

Rarewares, I can view my pictures on your site under Questions. Why can't you see them?

I can finally see these new ones that you added!

Your Donald Deskey/ Amodec 1930's bedroon set consisting of a 4-drawer dresser, bed frame, night stand and a

waterfall vanity with stool has a value of $8,000 to $9000 retail.

Some sites that I recommend for selling on your own are,,,,, Lushpad,, and
You can also go to or and search their directory (top, left) for an auction house near you and consign to them.
To finish, I will need you to click the five stars at the top of your screen and hit the submit button, thanks!
