I have a Duncan...

I have a Duncan Phyfe style table that has this printed on the bottom: I-50E 8500-817A-1

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.

I didn't get to finish. Then MAH. Is this a real Duncan Phyfe?

Expert's Assistant: Is there anything else important you think the Antiques Appraiser should know?

Its old.

Based on what you described, this is a 1940-1950 era Duncan Phyfe style

mahogany table made in the United States. The true Duncan Phyfe pieces were made

from 1784 to 1847 and the style was revived later. The printed numbers and the type of wood printed on the bottom indicate a later revival piece. A drop leaf table in this style has a value of $400 retail.

Some sites that I recommend for selling on your own are https://marketplace.apartmenttherapy.com/, www.loveseat.com (in CA),
Vinterior.com (in Europe), Pamono.com, Offerup.com (local), Varagesale.com (local),
Chairish.com, Ioffer.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.
