Selling some Antiques
Hi there, I'm selling a few antiques that have been in my family for a looonnnngg time, and I need some help! Does anyone work in antiques? I need a fair ballpark appraisal for selling them in today's market in Bozeman, Salt Lake or Aspen (the three places I could drive them to myself to consign them).
The green one is beautiful, hand painted Japanese scenes in a raised finish. Inside, there are built in shelves, tiny drawers and mail slots. It has some leg damage that is not visible (the leg needs to be reglued). American antique Queen Anne style secretary desk c.1904. Original unique green-crackle bookcase top with gold floral design on pediment and raised Asian landscape design on drop-front. Original finish, hardware and glass.
American antique Georgian style walnut secretary desk c. 1904. Book-matched burl panels on the drop-front desk and drawers and original glass in the bookcase top. Original finish. Original pulls and keyhole escutcheons. Shipping not included. GREAT shape, has one small chip on the front pull down. .
Two beautiful secretary desks. Any help at ALL is GREATLY appreciated, this is my rent money, so I'm in a hurry to figure it out! Thanks! Shipping not included.
