Hi Krissy,

Thank you for contacting Mearto with your appraisal inquiry.
How many chairs are in the set? I can see five in the photo...
Also, are they all side chairs or are there any armchairs and, if so, how many?

Thanks to confirm when you can,

There are a total of 6 chairs, one was in the kitchen. Therr are 2 chairs that have arm rests.

Is there a way to get an appraisal certificate? Also, we are looking to sell it if you know how we would go about doing so. Thank you!

You should be able to print the appraisal; I think that's the closest we can provide to an appraisal certificate.
While we don't conduct auctions directly, we work with lots of auctioneers from relevant and highly qualified auction houses throughout the US and around the world. Your item is in our database of leads and interested auctioneers will reach out to you directly on your email if they can help you sell your item.
If you said "yes" or "maybe" when we asked if your item was for sale auctioneers are now able to contact you. If you said "no" go to your item page and change that to "yes".
Alternatively, now that you have some information about what you have, you are always free to proactively reach out to auction houses in your area to see if they are interested in selling on your behalf.
Let me know if you have any other questions.
