Hi and happy holidays, all.
Recently came into possession of a Widdicomb dining set (table and 6 chairs) and am having difficulty identifying, authenticating, and valuating. What wood, style, age, etc. Also what is the value/price? Lots of conflicting info out there so hoping some good folk here can help. Pics are attached and any info is greatly appreciated.
Thx and Cheers

Well,, if the set is in excellent condition and all joints are tight..try starting at $1000.TO $1200. !! I have no idea of your location but that can be a factor as well !! You can see if there is any interest and if not lower the price a bit !! And be creative when you advertise it !! Sometimes you need to suggest decorating ideas to potential buyers !! Set it up when taking pics to look its best !! Try the Shabby Chic route with a nice flower arrangement on top and a lace tablecloth draped around it !!
Just give them an idea of its possibilities !!
And one more thing,, get some Old English dark oil,, and polish that top !! Light application and let sit for 15 minutes and buff well !! You can use the lemon oil on the lighter parts to make the design stand out more !! That will hide any scratches as well !!

Thanks so much for your kind consideration and feedback, Martha. Greatly appreciated. If it were you selling the set what price would you start at and what avenues do you think have the best chance for a sale? would be I understand there are many factors involved but what do you think you could reasonably ask for and receive?
Cheers!

Hi there and Merry Christmas !! Your dining set may have info underneath the table top !! Some mfrs did this for use by the workers that made it !! Check there and see !!
It is the typical 1970`s French Provencal style,,I remember the style well !! Yes,, the prices on all online sites are ridiculous and so far I have not seen any that sold for those prices !! Widdicomb did make some nice furniture but most were the earlier pieces in classic stained styles !! Problem with your set is that after the style went out of fashion,, no one wanted it !! As to the potential value,, that depends on if anyone is willing to pay what you ask for the set !! That is what value is,, no matter what anyone says or what is in the books or website,, if no one is willing to pay that price,, their estimate is dead wrong !! So if you are selling the set,, start wherever you wish and keep your fingers crossed !!
