Getting your antique furniture appraised is critical to knowing the value of it. Once you know the value you know how much a particular piece (or set) is worth, and thus, you can get the best value for your holdings. If you don’t get a piece of furniture estimated, it may turn out that that piece is worth a lot more then you sold it for. It could also work out to be less then you sold it for. One easy rule of thumb to play with furniture is if it’s worth more then $250-300, you should definitely get it estimated. This is if you don’t know what the piece is worth. If you do know what the piece was worth when you bought it, you can involve a method of subtraction to determine its current worth.
