In Response To: rolltop desk information wanted (fred crowe)

Fred, My comments are not necessarily aimed at you in particular. I understand why people ask such questions in the forum but the fact is that most restorers concentrate on developing and learning new methods of restoration work - not in learning the value of things. I can tell customers if a piece is good, an approximate age, and whether or not it has value. Valuing antiques is in the provence of people who specialize in such things ie. antique dealers. Most dealers can't do an expert job of restoring, and restorers can't do an expert job of valuing. Sorry we can't be of much help. Roger
