Hello and welcome! My name is Doris.
I have been an antiques collector, dealer and appraiser for over 56 years.
I will be pleased to help you.

Please know that I cannot accept any requests for "live conversations" such as phone calls.
I give my best answers in writing when I have time to think about them.
Sometimes a "Chat box" will pop-up asking if you would like a live conversation. Please know it is not from me.

Where do you live in Pennsylvania or another state with a large city near you.

Also, what types of antiques do you, silver, china, paintings, etc.?

Kind regards,

You may need to use more than one appraiser as your items are very diverse.

Let me see who I can find for you.
