If possible, always keep dining room sets together

Q: My parents bought this dining room set in Philadelphia when my dad was in medical school in the late 1950s. They bought it used and were told it was an antique and valuable — although I think they only paid $100 for it back then. I believe it is machine made. It appears to be Renaissance Revival in style and made of oak. Everything is all original and has not been refinished in my lifetime. Sadly one of the chairs has gone missing. So, can you tell me if it is worth hanging onto? Would the value of the pieces be greater together or separate?
