Hi, I have...

Hi, I have a set of 3 wooden, wicker seated chairs. One is blond and has decorations painted on it and the other 2 are black, both with painting/decorations on the backs and legs. I am not sure where they came from... just curious as to if they are worth anything.

Expert's Assistant: I always love having an appraiser look at my stuff. Sometimes its turned out to be surprisingly valuable. Is there anything else important you think the Antiques Appraiser should know?

Not at this time... I'm not even sure how to describe the chairs. They are kind of ladder back, but not a true ladder back....

These are all considered Hitchcock chairs which are defined by a ladder back and stenciled or painted

scenes in gold or primary colors over another colored paint usually black or mustard. They have an additional Pennsylvania Dutch style of tole painting in some areas.

These chairs are early 20th century and have values of $150 for chair 1

$100 for chair 2 and $75 for chair 3.

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.
