valuing a bunch of French furniture and some collectibles in OC?
Before he met me, my husband acquired some antique French furniture through a friend whose aunts ran a design center. I haven't been able to find any receipts for what he paid, and he doesn't remember much. I am about to remodel and redecorate the house, and would like to know the approximate value so that I can decide what to do with the different items. I'm in OC, CA -- any recommendations how to get an approximate value for a household of French furniture? Some of it I want to keep and maybe insure (large mirrored French armoire that looks very old); some I want to reupholster (pair of French loveseats, I believe top quality); some I want to sell (large u-shaped walnut desk that's too big for our space); some I would refinish (carved mahogany table I would paint).
