My name is ***** ***** it will be my pleasure to help you with this question.
Since you have so many pieces, you'll need an appraiser who can come to your home an view them. If you can tell me the nearest large city to you I can make recommendations.

Santa Cruz Calif is the city we are in
Expert:  Judith-on-Antiques replied 1 year ago.
The nearest large city to you is San Francisco. I looked for appraisers in San Jose, but there is no one there who is qualified.
Here are some qualified appraisers. You should contact each of them in order to find the best fit for you.

Since this is a sizable job, all of these appraisers should be willing to travel to you.
