I enclose a picture of a chair that has been in my family for at least 80 years. There is some evidence of woodworm but this has not been active for many years, otherwise it is in good condition. I would love to know how old this may be and an idea of its value. Trusting that you can help, so thanking you in anticipation.
Yours sincerely C.R.Benson
Thank you for your email. This chair looks to be a Victorian reproduction of a Jacobean chair because of the good condition of its legs. However, I would need to see the chair to properly judge its age. These chairs were often made in pairs and would have stood in the hallway of large houses. Either way, whether it is period or a Victorian copy, this style of chair is out of fashion today, and would sell for under £100.
My Aunt received this for 60 years service at Thomas Burnley Mill.
It has an inscription on the back. I believe it is still in working order.
Is it possible to value it please?
Thank you for your email.
You do not say whether your aunt’s Rolex watch is 9ct or 18ct gold and whether the strap is also gold. It would help the value if you happened to have the original sales receipt and documents as well as the original box. An 18ct gold ladies Rolex watch with a gold strap and documents could sell for over £1000, with a 9ct watch still selling for several hundred pounds.
