Advice selling antique dining room set

wjschmitzApril 20, 2012

I have a 1910-17 walnut dining set made by the Crocker Chair Company. It has been in my family since 1917. My wife and I have had it for the past 21 years, but we would like to redecorate and no one else in the family wants it.

It is a nice looking table 45x60" with five leaves that will expand it to 120". It also has six chairs and a matching buffet.

I found an old catalog page that shows the table and buffet, but the chairs are different than shown as it is from a slightly later generation:

I have no idea how much it is worth, or how to even begin getting it appraised or sold. Any help or suggestions? For what it is worth, we live in Woodbury, MN just east of St. Paul.

Thanks,

Bill

I'm in the Twin Cities and just bought an antique set on Craigslist for $800. If I were you I'd haunt the Craigslist antique and furniture sections for awhile to get a sense of what is there and what price. There are actually a lot of 20s-30s formal walnut sets, and whether or not they sell for a good price--or sell at all--depends, I'd think, on getting the right buyer. Good luck.
