How does a mere mortal who is not in the midcentury modern furniture business sell a huge Brazilian rosewood desk? What’s my best chance of getting a good price for it?
Visits to local stores and midcentury modern websites suggest these kinds of desks sell for between $1.5K and $5K. What are my options if I want to avoid Ebay? Is my only alternative to have a furniture dealer sell it on commission? What does that really mean, ie what are they interested in? Do I have any control over the price/my cut? How do I find out what it’s worth/will sell for? It has some minor scratches but is generally in great shape.
If you think I need to go through someone's store, can you recommend particular furniture dealers I should approach? I’m in NYC.
Thanks in advance.
