No thanks. Would prefer a written answer to show potential buyers.

Thank you for checking.

Your Antique Brunswick-Balke-Collender 9' Pool Table has an estimated retail value of $8500-10,000.

Online auctions like eBay generally bring wholesale selling prices.

If you would like to sell close to estimated retail, some ideas are:

The internet has your largest audience of buyers. Place small ads on these sites or set up your own small store on these sites.

Be sure to specify local pick up only for large items. That way the buyer would be responsible for obtaining his own insurance and transport.

These sites carry antique as well as vintage items.
Accept PayPal only.

Etsy.com - small fees-20 cents to list plus 3.5% final price.
Artfire.com

These sites are excellent and more upscale but fees are higher. I only recommend them if you have several items to sell.
GoAntiques.com
Rubylane.com
Tias.com
cyberattic.com
trocadero.com
https://www.justcollecting.com/about/selling

Or your nearest CraigsList.com where you can list items for free. Accept cash only.

Ultimately, to obtain these retail values we assume the piece or set is in good condition and that the final value depends on sale geographic location.

In general, a private seller to a dealer, via consignment or at auction can expect 30-50% of estimated retail value.

Insurance replacement values are usually about 20% more than retail values.

I hope I have helped you.

If I can help you with further questions about this answer, please let me know before you rate me.

We purchased the table in 1980 in Buffalo NY. When my husband was alive he had info on the age and name of the table. I've looked at hundreds on tables online and not seen this style. Do you know any sites that might show more photo. Most important I would like the year it was built and can you tell the type wood it is made of??

You can see many more pictures of ones for sale on eBay on the same page as this one here.

http://www.ebay.com/itm/like/253112965543?chn=ps&dispItem=1

Remember eBay prices generally are wholesale.

lt is impossible to know the exact date when you table was made; however, the workmanship looks to be early 20ThC.

It is also very difficult to tell wood type from a photo but it looks like this table was made of walnut veneers with Birdseye inlays.
