I have a piece of furniture that was built in the 1920s, in Chicago, possibly a salesman's sample piece. How can I find out what its value is?

Answer

If you are looking for information on your furniture, check to see if there is a label that names the company or artisan that made it. The more information you have, the easier it will be to identify the piece. I found an interesting book on furniture made in the 1920s - "American Manufactured Furniture - Furniture Produced in the !920s." In it, the Collector's Bookstore has reprinted old furniture catalogs of the era.
