Description

I inherited this bench from my grandmother and have cherished it since I was a little girl. I had room for it in my home in Boston but now that I’m living down in TN I have less room. I’m thinking of selling it and want to get an idea of its value. One of the ornate pieces along the bottom was broken off during the move but I have it. I can glue it back on myself or take it to a professional furniture restorer. I would be interested to hear your thoughts on this.

What does this mean?

Good morning, Susannah,
What a beautiful piece! I can see why you have cherished it!
You have a Dutch Rococo style marquetry inlaid walnut triple chair-back settee, circa 1900. A very similar one sold in Los Angeles for $350 last fall; if you were to sell it, I would not be surprised if it did a little better than my estimate but would not expect it to do considerably better. Here is a link showing the one that sold:
