1918 Bentley & Gerwig "C" rolltop desk- worth?

Hello
I have a wonderful old "c" shaped roll top desk that I've had for about 20 years. I no longer have room for the desk, it is very large, and would like to sell it. I have no idea where to find how much it might be worth. It is stamped "Inspected Nov. 29, 1918 "on the bottom on the top drawer. It is from the Bentely and Gerwig office furniture co. of Parkerville, W. Va. #189

I'd appreciate any assistance on how I might research the value of the desk. Any suggestion would be helpful.

Thank you!

Kathleen

Thank you for the input. I do live in a large metro area, so that sounds like a great suggestion. Have a good day!

If you will drop the names and Google "roll top desks" you will find many desks for sale. Ebay shows under Completed Sales the following prices: 800, 200, 132, 2,000, 100, 102, 87(childs RT desk). Where you desk has the date built (antique in 9 years) it would probably fetch a high price, perhaps $500-750, especially in good condition. If you live in a large metro area you could require Pick up only. I am not an appraiser
