Hello, I have found the following two places for you to contact and see about having either come to appraise. The first is Butterfield and Butterfield They are a well known auction House that has appraisers in all areas of antiques. Very good reputation and I have worked with them before.The second is a local appraiser that I have heard good reviews about. I have never worked with them before but I have not heard anything bad or poor about them either. I have placed all the information I found on both below for your review and to contact.___________________________________________________________________Butterfield & Butterfield Auctioneers & AppraisersSeattle, WA 98109Get Directions(206)(###) ###-####ategoriesAppraisers___________________________________________________________Singer Antique Galleries, LTD411 W Galer StSeattle, WA 98119Get Directions(206)(###) ###-####amp;raquo; Web Site» EmailBased on 3 reviewsAppraisals for Insurance, Estate, Divorce, Damage - Always Looking To Purchase Quality AntiquesHoursTue - Sat 10:00 am - 4:00 pmCategoriesCollectibles,Estate Appraisal & Sales,Appraisers,Furniture Stores,Housewares,Auctions,Antique Repair & Restoration,Insurance Adjusters,Antiques,Wholesale Antiques,Silverware,Used FurniturePayment MethodsAMEX, CHECK, MASTER CARD, VISA, DISCOVER, MASTERCARD, ALL MAJOR CREDIT CARDS, DEBIT, PAYPAL, FINANCING AVAILABLEIn Business Since1981General InfoSinger Antiques Galleries LTD. has been buying, selling and appraising fine antiques on top of Queen Anne Hill since 1981.
