Description and history of [rm_focus_keyword]
This is a Vintage Lloyd Loom Armchair and Rocking Chair from circa 1930
The Lloyd Loom armchair and rocking chair are two pieces of furniture that have a long history. dating back to the early 1900s. In the late 1920s, through to the 1950s, most wedding gift lists included a Lloyd Loom linen basket. They were available in many shapes and sizes – some with upholstered tops, others with glass over weave tops, for use as a bedside cabinet.
In this case, the chairs were designed circa Art Deco Period and originally made from rattan. The company’s goal was to create a comfortable and stylish chair that would be perfect for relaxation. The chairs quickly became popular, and they were soon being manufactured all over the world. Today, Lloyd Loom chairs are still highly sought-after, and they are considered to be one of the most iconic pieces of vintage furniture. The chairs are available in a wide range of styles, and they can be an excellent addition to any home.
The most known maker is W.Lusty and Sons. To know the maker you need to inspect the whole furniture and try to locate a maker’s mark.
In this case I understand they don’t have a mark, so the provenance, including maker’s name, cannot be obtained.
In the world of antiques, provenance is everything. A piece with a known history is more valuable than one without, and no history is more coveted than that of a piece made by a famous craftsman or artist. That’s why fakes are so damaging to the antiques market; they not only devalue the piece itself, but they also erode consumer confidence. In this case, the lack of a maker’s mark means that the piece’s provenance cannot be definitively established.
Lloyd furniture was very popular in the late 1920s, through to the 1950s. The company was founded in 1909 by Jamestown, New York, brothers George and Charles Lloyd. The Lloyd Loom process was patented in 1917 by the American Marshall B. Lloyd. Their first successful creation was the “Lloyd Loom,” a type of wicker made from fine-gauge wire that was stronger and more flexible than traditional wicker. This allowed for intricate designs, and the Lloyd Loom soon became synonymous with quality and style. The company expanded rapidly in the 1920s, opening factories across the United States and Europe. Lloyd furniture was particularly popular in Art Deco-style homes, and their pieces are still highly sought-after by collectors today. In recent years, the company has been revitalized, and is once again producing high-quality furniture that is inspired by their rich history.

How to sell it
Antiques, art, and other collectibles are difficult items to sell online. Selling [rm_focus_keyword] can take a lot of time. Be patient, but also make sure that the price you are asking for is the right one for your pieces of art. Consider the following tips on how to sell antiques and collectibles online: These tips will help maximize the price of your antique or collectible.
I would recommend selling it online. There are many ways to do this. For instance, Post an ad on Craigslist. Use eBay to sell antiques online. Post a listing on the Etsy marketplace. Sell with direct messages using Instagram. You can create a website using Squarespace or WordPress. Use Shopify to sell via a website, POS and social channels. List your items on Bonanza.com, Facebook Marketplaces, or Amazon Marketplaces. If you don’t have time, I would recommend starting with Facebook, Etsy, and Amazon.
The key to selling antiques online is to let potential customers know that you know what you are talking about. It’s much more difficult to sell something when the potential buyer can’t be sure it’s authentic. Sellers should use a well thought out descriptive guide like this one. A good lead generation service should be helpful in establishing these relationships with online buyers, and an effective way to do this is through classified ads. If a buyer asks for more information, giving them some valuable facts well ahead of time will get you more sales because your reputation will increase and real customers are the ones who ask for more details.
In order to sell your antiques online, you will need to create a profile on the relevant forum (Etsy, Amazon, and FB). Make sure you add a high-resolution image of the product (include at least 3 detailed photos) and add some text. The text should be informative and straight to the point; nothing fancy or fluffy.
Asking price is a big factor in selling your antique. If your asking price is too high (fancy company stickers, missing parts, or chipped paint), you are unlikely to get many bids. If the asking price is too low, it will cost you money for repairs, shipping, and insurance. As a general rule, I would recommend setting an asking price that is 80% of the value of this report, so you will make the listing attractive from the beginning.
About the valuation method
This is a detailed report of the value of your piece. To determine the value, the appraiser has considered the results from past auction sales. Keep in mind that the final price can be different from the asking price that you can find on the internet. You can see ads on the internet with different asking prices. However, a very high asking price doesn’t normally find cash from a buyer.
That’s why our method comprises searching and comparing similar past sale results that had a buyer. That’s why we can provide an accurate estimation of this item.
To get an accurate valuation of your antique piece, I considered the following: description, condition, and possible precious metal content. History, age, provenance, and the importance it has played in history are also considered. A crucial interest is a collector’s willingness to buy this piece. While some antiques are really collectible, others are really difficult to sell, and hence their value decreases.
Antiques can be a good investment. A piece’s year of manufacture, condition, rarity, and history can all influence an antique’s value.Antiques, when bought wisely and carefully, can provide many good years, even decades, of enjoyment before their value appreciates significantly. Antique furniture, paintings, prints, and maps are not only useful works of art but also tangible assets. Their value in the market increases every year, making them great long-term investments for people who want to diversify their assets.
