Hi. My name is*****'ll be glad to try and help.

.

If you just have a few different patterns, I'll be glad to value them for you. If you have a lot of china---all different makers and patterns, then, yes, having someone come to you would probably be the better way.

.

I can put together a list of potential people you can contact if you'd like.

I'll be happy to. I'm sorry for the late reply. We had bad storms here and it caused quite a few outages and delays.

As far as appraisers go, most appraisers tend to be in larger cities or areas with greater populations. To be completely honest, there aren't many in the entire state of Montana. The closet I could find is:

D&M Auctions

P. O. Box 3605
703 East Main Street
Lewistown, MT 59457
Office: (###) ###-####br />***** *****: Cell(###) ###-####br />Marilyn Burns: Cell(###) ###-####/p>

They not only have appraisers on staff, but they also handle sales and auctions. They would be a good first contact.

.

Another option is to contact estate sale companies. They can come in, inventory the items and even host a sale for you. Those are also hosted in larger cities but most will travel to you. Here's a few to contact:

Hopefully one of these will be a great fit for you. If there's anything else I can do please let me know.
