Hello!

I am still looking into Prufrock-Litton - it is amazing how little I know, and how little information there is about that company - and I am a St. Louis native!

Could you post some close-up pics that detail the back, bottom and leg detail? This would help a lot.

I'm sorry, this is all I have ....this is for sale from another seller, and I'm wondering if his price is fair or too high. These are his pics...can you tell me a round about price?

After a bit of research Prufrock-Litton Furniture co was a retailer in St Louis Mo during the early part of the 20th century They also had a showroom in NY City. This piece was made by someone else for their store. Information seems to suggest that they sold furniture of better quality. As far as a price for this piece goes this generic art deco style furniture does not seem to have a great following and most pieces that see at auction rarely go for more than $50 to $75 dollars. Being able to identify a specific manufacturer can have a great effect on those prices though as some of the more famous makers command a much greater price. Condition of these pieces is also a great determining factor. If the piece is not solid wool and has a veneer check it thoroughly for any separation, bubbles or chipping especially on the edges. If you are buying this piece because you like it and are going to use it then $125 to $150 is the most I would spend. If you are looking to buy it to resell than about $75 is tops. Remember this furniture is still not considered a true antique.
