Common antiques questions on JustAnswer


The Antiques Experts on JustAnswer have answered a diverse range of questions, such as:


  • What's the value of a vintage bolo tie with what I believe to be genuine bear claws, as well as large pieces of turquoise?
  • Can you help me identify this wooden mask, and tell me where it's from?
  • Where should I sell this book “The Art of Maurice Sendak” by Selma G. Lanes, which is in good condition and signed by Maurice Sendak?
  • We are looking for information on this tiny antique cast iron cap gun, measuring just 3-3/4 inches long overall.
  • What is the value of a complete set for 12 of French Havilland china?

When preparing to consult with a UK antiques Expert, have the following information ready:


  • Description of the piece
  • Manufacturer and serial number if known
  • Any markings of any kind
  • Where it came from, if known

You should also be ready to provide clear photos taken straight on, against a plain background in good light. Photos of signatures or marks are especially important.
