Kovels Item

Furniture of all types is listed in this category. Examples dating from the seventeenth century to 2010 are included. Prices for furniture vary in different parts of the country. Oak furniture is most expensive in the West; large pieces over eight feet high are sold for the most money in the South, where high ceilings are found in the old homes. Condition is very important when determining prices. These are NOT average prices but rather reports of unique sales. If the description includes the word "style," the piece resembles an older furniture style that was made at an earlier time. It is not a period piece.
