I have an antique Hygena cabinet from Liverpool

Expert's Assistant: Don't you just love the idea of finding something valuable in your attic? I do, but I think all I have up there is junk my brothers abandoned before they left home. Always a good idea to check things with the Antiques Appraiser, though. Tell us what else you do know and the Antiques Appraiser will be able to better assist you.

I have an Hygena Narrow Hoosier Cabinet from Liverpool is it worth anything?

Expert's Assistant: Is there anything else the Antiques Appraiser should be aware of?

It's in it's original condition, has labels inside the doors for spices ETC.

Your oak 1930's Hygena Narrow Hoosier Cabinet from Liverpool, England

has a value of $700 to $800 retail.

Some sites that I recommend for selling on your own are https://marketplace.apartmenttherapy.com/, www.loveseat.com (in CA),
Layerhome.com, Pamono.com, Offerup.com (local), Varagesale.com (local),
Chairish.com, Ioffer.com, Furnishly.com, Deconet.com, Lushpad, Krrb.com, and letgo.com (local).
You can also go to invaluable.com or liveauctioneers.com and search their directory for an auction house near you and consign to them.
They do all of the work and you get a check 14 to 45 days after the sale minus their 15% to 25% (negotiable!) commission.
