How To Sell Inherited Vintage Furniture?

Good Questions

Pin it button big

Q: Hi! My husband and I recently inherited several vintage furniture pieces, periods ranging from the 1900s to mid 60s furniture. We cannot keep all of it, but we are not sure about how to sell it.

Do you recommend having it appraised at an antique dealer? Are there any online resources for pricing antiques? What is the best way to sell antique furniture? Some of the pieces include a 1900s "nanny bed", a post-civil war piano, a player piano, as well as several bedroom furniture pieces and antique glass lamps. I'd really appreciate your help!
