I have very ornately...

I have very ornately carved french provential furniture from the1940's aproximately. Wondering if it is worth anything

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.

It belonged to my mother-in-law. She was married in the early forty's. It was made by Homer Brothers of Chicago. There is a couch, coffee table, two side tables, two chairs, and two lamps.

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

It is covered in white brocade. I also have a glass covered dining room table with six chairs /and two table leaves with pads/

Are the tables marked underneath? Let me know if there are marks on the bottom of the lamps.

Tables are not marked due to glass tops. Don't understand what you mean on lamps.

The lamps are porcelain and those would be marked on the underside or back in some cases.

SELL FURNITURE

Some sites that I recommend for selling on your own are www.loveseat.com (in CA),
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.
