Antique Mahogany Dining Room Furniture Craigslist

A catechism about one of the best accepted names in aged appliance came to my absorption recently. At one of my antiques-appraisal shows, I was asked about a Duncan Phyfe dining-room set. First, I had to explain the aberration amid an absolute Duncan Phyfe set and a reproduction set in the appearance of Duncan Phyfe. There is a big difference.

You may accept heard the chat “style” acclimated afterwards the description of abounding objects: Tiffany style, Victorian style, etc. For instance, a Duncan Phyfe-style dining-room set (emphasis on the chat “style”) differs from an aboriginal Duncan Phyfe dining-room set. Abounding appliance makers formed in the address of the backward 18th-century artisan Duncan Phyfe. Think of it this way: it’s like abreast accompanist Michael Bublé singing in the appearance of Frank Sinatra. Bublé sings like Sinatra, but he’s not Sinatra! Bublé singing Sinatra songs in the 2000s was a awakening of Sinatra’s style, which was accepted in the 1950s. Similarly, this awakening of the Duncan Phyfe appearance is apparent in appliance designs in the aboriginal decades of the 1900s. It is accepted that such pieces accept appear to be accepted as artlessly “Duncan Phyfe,” but they are not accurate Duncan Phyfe pieces. They are alone Duncan Phyfe-style.

As you apparently guessed, there is a big bulk or budgetary aberration amid accurate Duncan Phyfe appliance and Duncan Phyfe-style furniture.

Duncan Phyfe (1768-1854) was best accepted for the beeline curve and classical attending of his appliance carved in affluent adamantine dupe like amber and walnut. Ethics for an aboriginal Duncan Phyfe table ambit from $50,000 to $150,000. That bulk is based on absolute sales almanac area somebody absolutely paid cash, swiped a acclaim card, or wrote a analysis for that amount. It is not a bulk or bargain estimate. The ethics that I accommodate are based on an absolute bulk that addition paid for an aged or best piece. For instance, in 2006, a carved amber dining table by Duncan Phyfe dating to 1815 barometer 30 inches alpine awash for $132,000. That’s absolutely what addition paid for it. That’s the bulk you charge to apperceive back assessing value.

If you were to put a retail bulk on a typical, six-piece Duncan Phyfe-style dining-room set like those your aged aunts may accept acclimated to serve banquet on during the 1940s or 1950s, again the retail bulk for such a set is decidedly altered from that of an aboriginal Duncan Phyfe set from the backward 1800s. Usually such best Phyfe-style sets in acceptable action from the mid-1900s are account $2,000 on the retail market. What do I beggarly by the retail market? That’s the bulk you would pay if you went to a banker and bought a dining-room set like your set, with its accepted action factored in. Don’t be confused: “original” agency aboriginal but “style” may beggarly that you accept a reproduction or article else.
