Selling to a Dealer

Selling to a dealer is often the quickest and simplest way to dispose of an unwanted piece. But a dealer will not be very keen on buying a piece that he already has in stock. If he is offered a whole collection, he will give a price that reflects the speed and ease of re-selling -- better pieces usually sell quickly, common or unattractive pieces may stay on his shelves for years; his offer will be calculated accordingly.

Sometimes a dealer will be willing to sell your pieces for you on commission. Tell the dealer what you have in mind, and he will be able to advise you as to the best way to sell.
