    Antique furniture, how much would you pay?

    I am at a friends house and I have the opportunity to buy this. It has a little bit of problems with it but nothing too bad where it's broken beyond repair. It has the mayor just it's not in it right now because they're moving. I believe it's solid cherry and just wondering what you think fair price for it would be? What to call it as well!

    Rococo Revival style Hall Tree is what occurs to me.

    Google rococo revival hall tree or rococo revival etagere

    I would also Google eastlake hall tree since it is not as ornate as baroque/rococo revival pieces I have seen and has simpler lines that characterize Eastlake period furniture. Could be a transitional piece post civil war. The type of wood joiningswould help to date it.

    I know, I have a max $150 to spend on it. It matches the furniture in my office. My wife doesn't like it. I will try to get some pictures of the joints tomorrow on it. Thanks.

    I wouldn't go over $50 for it. You also need to find the restoration price.

    Alright. It does have the mirror. But they're getting ready to move and it's packed. But there's also A glass shelf as well that is there. Just not in the picture because it is packed as well. They are able to get them out that all should I decide to buy it.

    I'm no expert at all but the money is made at the buy! $50.00 max if mirror and shelf are dug out and included. Remember your wife doesn't like it so you may be selling it shortly! lol! No sense messing with it if you can't make some good cash quickly on it! It is hard to ship!

    It is a Antique Mirrored Etagere (basically a fancy Curio Shelf) and some that are quite elaborate are very valuable! What you believe is Cherry is quite possibly Rosewood or Black Mahogany. The Makers name is usually on the nicer pieces such as this one and it should be on the back. The Maker of the piece could date it as well as make it very valuable! I believe round mirrored Etageres are fairly rare as most of the ones made had square, rectangular or oval shaped mirrors. Search eBay and Google and you will see that most of the nicer and more elaborate Etageres are often worth from $1,000 upwards to $10,000 or more.

    It can be VERY expensive to restore furniture. If it needs any more than just minor work, I would pass.

    I concur that my max would be $50 on this piece.

    Guns kill people, and people kill people. We can only hope to control both.
    I wouldn't touch that with a 10 foot pole. You could pay me $10 to put it in my trash can. Building and Antiquing a new base, refinishing the gingerbread all around the piece, New mirror, and at best, you would end up with a piece that would retail for $100. It is a loser coming out the door (at least in my opinion).
