Customer Question
We have some early...

We have some early American furniture--tables with porcelain knobs, chairs with lift-up arms, etc. Would be interested in their value and where we could sell them.

Expert's Assistant: I always love having an appraiser look at my stuff. Sometimes its turned out to be surprisingly valuable. Tell us what else you do know and the Antiques Appraiser will be able to better assist you.

We have had them since early 40s. Got them in a ranch sale. They were in the clubhouse.

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

They are in good condition

Hello,

How many furniture pieces do you have in total, and are they part of a matching set or were just acquired all at the same sale?
