I have two antique park benches with cast iron arm rests.
It was here when we bought our home.
Thank you for contacting Mearto with your appraisal inquiry.
The problem with using eBay to gauge value is there is no oversight or vetting; people can ask whatever they want without knowing the correct fair-market value of things. EBay will rarely disclose the actual selling price and many people put high values on things expecting to be negotiated down.
If you'd like for your appraisal to include dimensions, which is customary, please forward in the comments section - at your convenience - the height, width and depth and I'll update this ASAP.
