We bought what looks like a mid-century china cabinet and matching marble top buffet (Stanley printed inside drawer) from an estate sale 5 years ago and are looking to see what line it came from, approximate year, and resale value. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

These items come in so many choices and finishes it is really hard to tell so my suggestion is to dig deep, pull out the drawers, crawl under the table and look for marks and tags. Yours is an elegant set, yet some would be turned off because it is not natural wood but painted. Some would love it. Your pieces will have a defined quality once you find some markings. The ranges are low to very high in price.

Here is an extremely high quality Stanley buffet at $3500 retail. http://www.google.com/imgres?imgurl=http://media.cymaxstores.com/Images/ 171/230537-L.jpg&imgrefurl=http://www.cymax.com/ Stanley-Furniture-Grand-Continental-Empire-Marble-Top- Buffet-in-Antique-Terra-Finish-946-11-05.htm& usg=__8uGFv1VwXwLih2gCJRoqTdcpgm4=&h=800&w=800&sz=137& hl=en&start=4&zoom=1&tbnid=NvrAA62nRwsdVM:&tbnh=143& tbnw=143&ei=Bl8-T463EcOv0AHl6syvCA&prev=/search%3Fq% 3DStanley%2BChina%2BCabinet%2Bwith%2Bmarble%2Btop% 2BBuffet%26um%3D1%26hl%3Den%26sa%3DN%26gbv%3D2%26tbm% 3Disch&um=1&itbs=1

In this economy only the 1% could afford the high end stuff.
