under 200 dollars. order some howards orange oil wax from ebay and clean and shine it up, then wipe it all off a day later after the residue has had time to soak in and it will be worth more. does it have a key and does the lock work. makes a difference.

Wow…I bought one just like it a yard sale for 10 bucks refinished it and still have and use it 25 years later…
It value is what it’s worth to you…(as a buyer)
It’s worth as a seller might have a different value…

Solid wood? If so, what kind? Murphy’s Oil Spray is also good for rehabbing wood.

If its solid wood, it will be worth more obviously…
The price, as much as the market dictates…but maybe around $100 if its solid…someone can strip and stain it and have a great piece of furniture.
You buying or selling?

I’m selling. I wish I had the time to restore it and but I don’t be doing that.

What do you mean by solid wood?

vanguardian's avatar

Solid wood. Some furniture is manufactured using wood ply or composite with a wood veneer over it. Is very commonly used. The big advantages with solid is strength and ability to stain. Fake is cheap, light & easily mass produced.

It all depends. I you want a great desk with a lot a space you can dance on, it is priceless. However if you are selling it not so much maybe all cleaned up you are looking at $50 – $100 depending on where you are. The price will increase if you have a great story to go along with it. People are always looking for ways to have a part of history, even if it is not their history, or part of important history.
Good luck
