    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

    Let people bid for them in ebay, promote your posts with craiglist and few other classified ads

    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.
