Hello. My name is***** you send me a few images of one or two items so I can advise you?
Depends where you are based in the UK, the best way to sell antique furniture is an auction. Now, I am based in Edinburgh, if I have antiques for sale, for example, the Chinese 18th-century bowl, I would call a few auction houses if Chinese porcelain is doing well at their auction. Italian antique mahogany furniture is usually superb quality, the items that you mentioned, bed, wardrobe, etc. sell really well at the moment. Antique furniture is not in anyone`s aesthetic but quality always sells, also wardrobes, beds, and chests of drawers are very popular. Send a few images also to Bonhams, if you have something special maybe the best way to go is to contact a prominent auction house to achieve the best price. I sold with Bonhams and I was always pleased with the autcome. Don`t worry about restoration, Italian furniture is very desirable.
Sure! No Problem!
