I have an antique bench with beautiful carvings. I bought it in Istanbul-Turkey. I believe it was made in mid-Europe possibly Holland or Belgium. I would like to know more about it, what is the wood, how old is it how much is it worth, where was it made

Hello, my name is Glenda

The Wood Appears to be Red Mahogany, the age appears to be from the late 1800's I cannot say who made it or where since it is not marked, it does appear to be European, it has an estimated value on the current market for an average of

3***-**-****.00 GBP

If you plan on selling. There are some great sites you can sell from.

.

Facebook Marketplace is how most people post things for sale locally.

Etsy is a great site. There is also craigslist locally which is free.
Ebay is a great option. It does reach a lot of people, but items tend to sell a little lower on there If you do decide to try Ebay, I recommend setting reserves.
.
I hope you have a good day.
.
It was a pleasure working for you.
