My mother has a pair of antique Duplex kerosene lamps she wants to sell.  Any ideas of where I can go to find out an asking price?  I'm thinking of putting them on Craig's List for her.  They are probably from the 1880's.  All original.

Check sold listings on eBay, I'm pretty sure when you search that you can include sold listings. If there are any antique shops local to you, they might share a price range with you.

One like it just sold on ebay for about $100, including shipping. Maybe she can get $75.

You can always ask the higher price and have room to haggle; or just put up the lower price to move it out.

OMG, that is beautiful!  I wish that I had somewhere in our place to put something like that.  It doesn't really match or go with anything I have or any of our colors (not that they are all set, LOL)...

Ebay is a good place to start, there is also an antique section on Etsy and Ruby Lane is also popular for antiques. I also know people who post high end items for sale on Craigslist, take paypal and ship. Very pretty lamp. I have one without the glass globe (cat knocked it over).

I'm no help I have old things that I'm sure others would sell but I'm too sentimental. I just wanted to say how pretty that lamp is! I love it.

I already have two of them, with different globe designs.  Or I would keep them myself. My dad got them at an auction from an old hotel 40 years.  He gave all the daughters one for Christmas.  We moved a jillion times over the years with husband's career.  I always boxed mine and carried it in the car; never let the movers pack it.  Recently, I got another from a sister so I have two.

It was hard to get them polished at first, but now I can whisk over the brass in a few minutes.  My original one had a slight split in the brass.  I took it to a shop and they repaired it.  I asked how it got the crack and the guy said, "it was just really old.  Metal fatigue."  The Duplex patent dates from about 1865.  I am tempted to just buy them from mom, but I really don't need 4 of them...

 

I put them on Craig's List to start with.  I really don't want to do Etsy as it would be so challenging to ship them.  I'd rather someone just came and picked them up.

I sold one for a sister about 10 years ago on ebay for $150 to a guy in Italy.  It traveled just fine and he was thrilled.  I don't sell on ebay anymore; too many awkward transactions and my skin is not thick enough.

Here in our region....Central Oregon....someone started a "Central Oregon Buy-Sell-Trade page on Facebook.....I've seen some nice things for sale on there. Maybe your area has a page like that too?

There are some pages like that for this area in Montana, too. I'm not on any of them, but hubby is on all of them.
