    I have these antiques at my home land (Srilanka) and i need to sell them for a good price. These are at least 100 years old.


    Antique wooden sofa (120 years old, no proof -ofcourse an expert can measure the age by the designs)

    All are under very good conditions.

    I need your advices on these. I mean these are really expensive and I tried on ebay, but didn't went through well.
    Do you know any better sites to sell them on?

    I contacted many auction sites, but they rarely reply.

    thanks

    Not much for plates thats for sure.
    Singer (can't see the image) under $100, you really have a LOT of these. In Serbia every 2nd old house in the country side have one of these.
    That sofa might worth something, but I wouldn't count on getting rich with it.

    I have been dealing with antiques for over 20 years. You may get a third of the value on ebay if you're lucky. You're better off selling them yourself.
