I would like to know more about this high chair. It's not in really bad shape and I was wondering about what it's worth and would it be worth more like it is or should I strip it and repaint it. Thanks for any help.

    I have one close to this and use it for my grandson. He likes when it's folded down into a table. It's missing it's tray. I would say that it would be worth more stripped down and useable. Don't ask me about paint, I'm not a fan.

    Agree-- you are only helping the value by cleaning this up.

    Be careful if using it-- it has a lot of areas that can easily catch and hurt little hands.

    Mine doesn't have any metal on it thankfully, even the wheels are wood. I would be careful of the metal latches on that. it looks to me like it's been painted once anyway.

    I would completely restore the piece. It would restore very nicely and have more value after restoration. I have restored several of these over the years and this one looks pretty nice. Completely restored it should have a value of around $350.00-$600.00 depending on the area you live. Hope this helps. You can see some of my work at http://www.ssattic.com
    Thanks for sharing.

    What? Mine is original and older and it's not worth that much.

    We sold one two months ago for $895.00 it was right at 100 years old very decorative and completely restored. Here is a link to one on ebay that is very similar to the one we sold http://cgi.ebay.com/Antique-Oak-High-Chair-Stroller-/300494922361?pt=Antiques_Furniture&hash=item45f6e4a279

    The market can be very different depending on where you live and the demand for items. We had that high chair for ever and one day a lady walked in saw it and bought it on the spot.
    I believe the market is coming back for certain antiques and collectibles.

    You are also talking about a chair much older than the one above. Mine is a 40's this one is a late 50's early 60's. I found mine for $50 and one that went for $2.50 at a live auction. I'm sure if it sat in store forever it would go higher, most people don't have that advantage. Big difference in 'antique"=100 years old and Vintage=20 plus years old. In this economy people are selling because they need money. It's best to be realistic.

    The money is much easier to carry in your pocket than the item in most cases.

    I have to agree with Vesta.

    In my area you'd be lucky to get $50 for this one (fully restored). But I think that the ebay one would find a buyer in the $250- $350 range.
