I'd be happy to give a geberal value of these items you've listed;

1) Tiffany style lamp, 1970's, valued at $200

2) vintage print of horses, framed, valued at $40 to $60

3) 15-piece German spice set, 1930's, valued at $250 to $325

4) Oak chest of drawers, circa 1910, valued at $100 to $175 depending on number of drawers and w/ w/o a mirror.

Some sites that I recommend for selling are Offerup.com (local), Varagesale.com (local), Wanelo.com, http://www.decluttr.com, Bonanza.com, Ioffer.com, Etsy.com, eBay 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.
Please do click the stars now for this one (bonuses are also welcome!), it is very important for me
to get five-star feedback for answers.

The Tiffany lamp and the pictures of horses are both over 100 years old does that effect there value also the oak chest has 5 drawers and no mirror
Antique Expert: Rarewares, Antiques and Collectibles Researcher replied 4 months ago

You are welcome to add photos. This would change the value.

Here are a few different options for sending pictures. The availability of each feature depends on which browser
(Safari, Chrome, Firefox or Internet Explorer) you are using and whether you are on a desktop or a phone.

1) Use the +Add Files feature next to the red SEND button on in the area where you write back to me
to upload photos of the item, including maker's marks.

2) Use the paperclip icon above the texting area where you reply.
The photos will upload when you add at least one word in the text box.
You won't see the photo, but the paperclip will turn green.

3) You can email the pictures to***@******.*** with
"forCustomerquot; in the subject line of the email and they
will forward them to me (please include the link to your question page).This way takes 24-48 hours.
