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.
I do not know what you are asking to be assessed.
Is it a spoon?
Please send photos - one of the front of the piece and clear, close-up one of the marks on the back.
There are two ways to send images. The second one- via email - can take 24 hours.
You may need to use the macro function (flower icon) of your camera to get a good clear photo of the marks.
If you cannot get a good photo, then sketch the marks and take a photo of the sketch.
To send photos you may use the "reply to expert" in the blue box link on your reply page or the "paper clip" found in the toolbar you see on your reply page.
Please do not send in ZIP format. The jpg or jpeg format works best.
An explanation of this method can be found here:
This is the official explanation of how to send photos via email:
Please follow the directions exactly or they will not get to me.
Send the picture to ***@******.***
In the subject line put " Pictures for˜Doris in Antiques or Appraisals."
In the body of the message put, your user name and name.
Make sure to send these from the same address that you registered with
Just Answer, so they can verify who you are.
This method takes longer because the photos are sent to the Just Answer
techs who must forward them to me. It sometimes takes as long as 24 hours.
They will forward them to me and as soon as I get them I will contact you.
