As of 2015, shoppers can find prices for a wide array of antique chairs at eBay and the Internet Antique Shop at TIAS.com. Other good sources for prices for antique chairs include RubyLane.com and Bonanza.com. Because these sites offer a wide variety of antique seating, they give customers a strong sense of the typical price range for different types of chairs from different periods and styles.
These sites stay up to date with new listings and prices, so they give shoppers a good way to stay current with the market in antique chairs. Many books also serve as reliable resources for both the prices of antique chairs and their identification by style and time period. These include "The Antique Hunter's Guide to American Furniture: Tables, Chairs, Sofas, and Beds," by Marvin D. Schwartz, and "The Bulfinch Anatomy of Antique Furniture: An Illustrated Guide to Identifying Period, Detail, and Design," by Paul Atterbury. Both of these books as well as many others about antique seating in general or chairs from specific time periods are available on Amazon.com. However, the disadvantage of using books instead of websites is that the prices listed in the books may not be as current as the prices listed online.
