DO NOT GO HERE. THIS PLACE IS FALSE LABELING AND THE OWNER DOESN'T KNOW MUCH ABOUT ART HISTORY.
It was my first time here today. I am an avid antiques shopper and know my stuff when it comes to furniture, since I own several pieces from the Biedermeier, Gruenderzeit, Art Nouveau and Art Deco era. I was appalled to see a simple German 1950's kitchen buffet in the store, labeled as 'Art Deco', and priced for $650. The furniture in question is located on the left, after you entered the mall, and walked to the right for about 8 yards. - When I told the shop owner that this piece is from the 50's and not worth more than approximately $100, she told me I had no idea, that she was selling antiques for 12 years and who am I anyway! I told her that this was false advertising and cheating the customers. She replied: 'what do you care and who are you anyway?' Well, I am, or was, a prospective customer. So guess what: I do care!
-What an attitude and what an obvious sign of incompetence on her behalf.
It is very easy to find proof on the internet, that this type of German kitchen buffet/schrank is from the 40s and 50's and not worth more than approximately $100. This type of furniture is of very low value and certainly not Art Deco! This is false advertising on behalf of Spring Valley Antique Mall. I would think, people rely on the expertise of the owners. I can only say, DO NOT SHOP HERE!
Also to consider: If I can determine very easily over the internet, that this kind of furniture is from the 1940's/1950's and certainly not Art Deco style, then the shop owner should be able to do the same, but didn't do her homework or .....you make any assumption yourself.
