Customer Question

I have a number of antiques and would like to find an experienced appraiser to come to my home. The antiques are of European and Chinese origin and I would like to know their value not only for insurance but include them in my will. The last time I had them appraised was at least 16 years ago and the valuation was about 160 thousand dollars. About four years ago I added a painting by a French painter, possibly Poussin or his school.
I live in westlake village in southern CA.
