An appraiser charges $150 an hour for in-home visits plus the research and writing time. You would require an appariser if you are considering a donation or if it is an estate tax situation. If interested in selling, I recommend contacting auction houses who can help with a sales estimate and consideration for selling on your behalf. You may want to start with Rago Auctions in Lambertville, NJ. You can contact them through their website, here is the link for you: http://www.ragoarts.com/contact/
