Customer Question
For sale a dunken...

For sale a dunken Pyiff dining room set with table, 5 harp back chairs 2 of which have arms, buffet and china cabinet all in very good condition.

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.

Not much more to tell. I am downsizing and must sell.

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

Two of the chairs are missing metal harp strings but I have them to be replaced.

A 1940's era Duncan Phyfe style dining room set with table, chairs, buffet and china cabinet

has a current value of $2500 to $2800 resale.

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), http://www.revueconsignment.com/ (in Ohio),
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.
