frequently asked questions

To understand the potential value of your antique furniture, you should try to find similar antique furniture styles and their value. Once you have a rough idea of your antique furniture’s value from searching on the internet, we recommend to have the piece professionally appraised.
Dusting with a soft brush is the best way to regularly clean and maintain your antique furniture.
