Customer Question
I have a dining...

I have a dining set with six chairs and a buffet. It was purchased in 1919 by family. The table has spring loaded ends to extend table capacity. Any idea what it might be worth?

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 have a dining set purchased in 1919. It includes a table with spring loaded leaves at each end, six chairs and a buffer. Can you give me an idea about possible value please?

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

Two of the chairs will require some work, as you can imagine at 99 years old it is delicate

Use the +Add Files feature next to the SEND button to upload photos of the item, including maker's marks.
The feature works best when you add ONE picture, put a word in the text box, hit send, then do the next.

I can work without pictures, just let me know.
