Customer Question
Good Morning: Due to a death...
Good Morning:
Due to a death in the family we are emptying the upstairs unit of a 2-family home in Arlington, MA. There is some furniture, primarily a dining room set and hutch (or curio cabinet ... not sure which is which) that are quite old. We would like to know what they are worth, if anything, before deciding to either sell or simply dispose of. How does one find out value - and then if worth it, sell?
Regards,
***@******.***

Thanks Doris. Unfortunately the home in question is in MA and I am in NH, and am hoping to be there on Saturday - weather permitting. I will measure, photograph, and find any info (age, manufacturer, etc.) that I can and will then get back to you.
Antique Expert: Doris, Personal Property Appraiser replied 2 years ago

That will work.

There is no hurry here.

Kind regards,

Doris

Hi Doris,I just received a call from my brother who is handling the sale of the house. We just received an offer we are going to accept - and the buyers want it "as is" including furnishings. I am so sorry for wasting your time today.Thank you!
Antique Expert: Doris, Personal Property Appraiser replied 2 years ago

Understood. How fortunate you are!

Kind regards,

Doris
