Ask Your Own Antiques Question

History of the Hickory Chair Co founded in 1811.

http://www.madebyhickorychair.com/hickory-chair-a-100-year-story.html

History of the Hickory Chair Company James River Collection

"Since 1941, Hickory Chair has provided classic forms inspired by the antiques found in the elegantly appointed interiors of plantation homes found along the James River in Virginia. This lovely collection recaptures the spirit and details that embody the fine aesthetics of 18th Century design including balance in scale, refinement in shapes and lines, intricate inlays and crisp carvings, acanthus leaves, shells, and ball and claw feet. Each piece is crafted to Old World standards and with your finish selection patinas are hand-rubbed to a depth that reflects beauty and personalization."

Source: Hickory Chair Company website

Hickory Chair has made your James River style drum table since 1941 to the present.

It is impossible to know exactly when since 1941 your table was made. All that have been made are identical.

The one in the picture you sent is new, not used.

As a used example of this James River Hickory Chair Co drum table, the estimated retail value is $1800-2000.

Online auctions like eBay generally bring wholesale selling prices. Sales in the eBay "Buy It Now" format are closer to retail.

If you would like to sell close to estimated retail, some ideas are:

The internet has your largest audience of buyers. Place small ads on these sites or set up your own small store on these sites.

Be sure to specify local pick up only for large items. That way the buyer would be responsible for obtaining his own insurance and transport.

These sites carry antique as well as vintage items.
Accept PayPal only.

Etsy.com - small fees-20 cents to list plus 3.5% final price.
Artfire.com

These sites are excellent and more upscale but fees are higher. I only recommend them if you have several items to sell.

Rubylane.com
Tias.com
cyberattic.com
trocadero.com
https://www.justcollecting.com

Or your nearest CraigsList.com where you can list items for free. Accept cash only.

Ultimately, to obtain these retail values we assume the piece or set is in good condition and that the final value depends on sale geographic location.

In general, a private seller to a dealer, via consignment or at auction can expect 30-50% of estimated retail value.

Insurance replacement values are usually about 20%-50% more than retail values.

I do not know what you mean? I did not send you a link to table. You sent me one.

The label in your table is the James River Plantation Collection drum table.

Ask Your Own Antiques Question

The one in your picture is a James River Collection by Hickory (according to the label you sent) drum table made since 1941.

As a vintage, used piece of furniture, the estimated retail value would not be over $2000.
