Are you wanting a list of appraisers in your area?
The appraiser will advice what they would want you to do as for unpacking it. Also I cannot give a value based on something I cannot see.
If you want an appraiser to come to look at this then I need to know where you are so I can get a list together for you.
I have never unpacked a chandelier, so I cannot advice you on what to do in that respect.
If it were mine I would unpack carefully and hang it some where safe.
Are you wanting a list of appraisers to call?
I am very experienced with chandeliers, I have purchased them and sold them for over 45 years, many coming from Europe that had to be unpacked. If you are afraid to unpack this then you need the local appraiser to look at this packed up, then they can advice you on how to unpack and the also can value it for you.
All of us are experienced with Chandeliers, but no one can value this without seeing it.
I can get you a list of appraisers in your area to contact?
I am saying that I cannot advice you how to unpack an item you have, since I cannot see this item. I cannot tell you how you should unpack an item.
I do not know where you are messaging me, if you are answering an email that does not reach us. Appraisers are not employees of the site we do not work there. We only communicate with the customer in this message box.
If you can unpack your chandelier get it all put together and send pictures of it , then it can be valued online, a current market value can be given.
Here is how you can send images of the complete chandelier where it can be seen as a complete hanging light.
If your message box has a blue box that says "attach file" or a paper clip icon you can use that to upload photos. If not then Click the link: for instructions on uploading images . http://ww2.justanswer.com/help/how-do-i-send-photo-or-file-expert-hl.Or you can send them like this: In an Email! This can take awhile depending on how busy they are at Just answer, they do forward them to me. .Send the picture to ,***@******.***, in the subject line put " Pictures for Glenda B in Antiques"..In the body of the message put , your user name and name..Make sure to send these from the same address that you registered with just answer with , so they know who you are. If you send from a phone the email address on the phone you use has to match the email address you used to register on the justanswer site with. . Sometimes it can take over 24hrs, depending on how busy the site is. We the appraisers are not employees of the Just Answer site, we come to the site to answer questions, we do not work there. They get photos in from customers, they then send them to the correct departments ( categories, ) then they are forwarded to the appraisers. I have no control over how fast all of this happens. I will let you know as soon as they send them to me..Glenda
