|History Of The Item:||Henredon Furniture, founded in 1945 and headquartered in Morganton, NC, is a furniture manufacturer specializing in high-end wood and upholstered furniture for the home. Henredon was founded in 1945 by four men determined to build furniture of custom quality. The initial product line consisted of just three chests. It has since mushroomed into hundreds of beautiful wood and upholstery designs for every room. Today, among people of discriminating taste, the name Henredon represents some of the best furniture America has to offer. // Grand Provenance Brand by Henredon - A return to pure elegance in a collection combining deluxe elements of classic European styling with modern proportions and panache. Exuberant walnut burl and highly and highly figured walnut, intensified with intricate inlays and marquetry, imbue the designs with lively motion. Abundant carvings, brass ormolu and touches of gold play an important part in this gilded style.|
|Appraiser Tips:||Undoubtedly this is a beautiful quality set of furniture. Someday when this furniture is antique it will probably be in demand because it is a quality set. However it is reproduction 20th century furniture, which was manufactured and not handmade. Had the $10,000.00 been spent on antique furniture it would still be worth that much or more, but 20th Century reproduction furniture always looses a significant amount of the original value on the secondary market. Buying new furniture is like buying a new car, the minute you drive it off the lot it looses value.|
