Question DetailsAsked on 1/11/2012

How can I get an idea how much an old piece of furniture might be worth?

I have bedroom furniture that belonged to grandparents and I'd like an estimate of its value. I have a possible buyer but do not know what selling price to set.

Do you have the same question? Follow this Question

I had an antique piece that I wanted to sell. I contacted a local antique shop, and asked her if I could send her an e-mail with pictures and get her thoughts on its value. She was kind enough to do so, suggesting that I might get $1,000 if I sold it myself. Perhaps you could also find someone who would do this for you.

Exchanging info with an antique store, auction house or appraiser is the best bet to get an accurate price quote

A second option, for a much less reliable estimate is to find something similar (place of origin, year, etc.) on an antiques website to get a sense of the going rates.

Here are a couple good examples of websites with priced inventory online:

Good Luck!
