Renaissance Revival Bedroom Sets

by John Werry on March 11, 2008

Two fine three-piece Renaissance Revival bedroom sets are up at auction this week and one of them is seeing heavy bidding. With 6 days to go, the bedroom set above has 13 bids taking it up to $8,101. A newspaper stuffed into the back of the mirror from 1871 provides a basis for dating the set to within a few years following that date. The set has been refinished and the mirror resilvered so it is probably ready to go right into your bedroom. Just bring your full-size mattress. The only complaint I have about the set above is the brass hardware. They appear polished to brand new and I prefer a bit of patina left on them, but that is personal preference.

The set below has zero bids but that is due to the $9,500 starting price and the three line description. I can’t believe that someone selling a $10k item would provide a 41-word description of what they’re selling. We’ll see where it ends up in 4 days when the auction is over.

Could you please email me the sales results of the two
Renaissance Revival bedroom sets? I am researching what these
bedroom suites are selling for.
Thank you for your time.

Sorry, this is too long ago and I cannot access Ebay’s historical data that far back. Try for “sold” prices.
