Last week, I gave a presentation to the members of the Northumberland Woman’s Club in Lottsburg on the topic of antiques and their current values.  After the talk, I offered appraisals for the items the ladies had brought to the meeting.  I found many interesting pieces, including a Victorian parlor suite, only one chair of which the lady had brought, and some fine pieces of china and glassware.

This jelly cupboard was an estate sale purchase in Maryland many years ago.  The wood is chestnut, and the piece at one time was painted. The present owners stripped and refinished it.  The piece is solid, in good condition, but the keepers for both latches are missing, and the doors tend to swing open.

A couple from Washington bought this watchmaker’s cabinet at an antique mall about 10 years ago.  The wood is maple and other mixed woods, and the pulls are brass.  When they got the piece home, they found a number of watchmaker’s tools still inside the drawers.  The overall condition is excellent, and the piece has not been refinished.  It bears no label or signature indicating where it was made.  The back is unfinished.  The stool is not original to the cabinet.  The owners now are interested in selling it.

This Victorian parlor table belongs to a Northern Neck family who inherited it many years ago.  The wood is walnut, and the family thinks the finish is original.  Although the picture appears to show a round table, the top is oval.
