Posted by JustAnswer at customer's request) Hello. I would like to request the following Expert Service(s) from you: Live Phone Call. Let me know if you need more information, or send me the service offer(s) so we can proceed.

We do one item/set per question here to keep things organized. Let's get started with the flow blue. Add photos of the flow blue and any mark (s) on the bottom. You can attach pictures by using the paper clip icon or add files button. These features work best on a desktop computer. If that doesn't work for you, there is an email option as well. Let me know.

For each of the other items, start a new question and put 'for rarewares' as the first words so that the question will be saved for me. Add photos to those questions as well. It is important for me to see what I am appraising.

Because of the volume of items that would not be practical. I would like to have some one on site to appraise everything. My location is in Springfield Missouri.(###) ###-####

I understand. I can switch gears and recommend someone that would come and do that for you. You are at no obligation to consign to the auctioneer. You just call them and say you have a house full and need a house call to see what your items are worth. It is not a service that we provide, but here a reputable and licensed auctioneer in your area.

If you decide to consign, they would remove it all for you, sell the items, and you would get a check in 10 to 45 days (each place is different) minus their 10% to 20% commission. In my opinion, this is the best way to sell your antiques with the least amount of hassle.
