If You Were Going to Sell This Chiffrobe

What would ask for it. It's all original, still has the original finish (that has darkened over the years), the original beveled Mirrors and the woodenwheels/rollers. I know it's over 100 years old at least.

What is the finish? What is the wood? And how do you know it's over 100 years old. It looks like a 1930s-40s piece to me.

Those things don't sell for much, but if you thoroughly cleaned it and markets it as storage for a baby's room you could get some action.

I believe it's possible it's over 100 years but not by much. They were first made in the early part of the 20th century. Very likely it's gumwood stained to look like walnut.
I'll bet you can get $200 for it....

Thanks Lindac! The reason I said it was probably over 100yrs old is because it belonged to my Grandmother. She died Jan.9, 1971 at the age of 92.

I'm wanting to sell it and $200.00 was what I was thinking would be a fair price, especially considering it's all original,etc.

Thanks again!!
