Customer Question

I have a hand caned folding rocker with lovely liines and charming details given to me in the 1970s. Would like to know it's worth and perhaps receive a few resources that may be interested in purchasing or selling this piece. I also have a set of Mother of Pearl handled Sheffield silverware, purchased in the mid 1960s, but only used a handful of times max pristine condition. This flatware is a combo of stainless & silver, setting for 12, 89 pieces. This includes 12 salad, dinner forks, dinner knives, butter knives, 24 teaspoons, 5 serving pieces ...2 salad, 2 serving & 1 pie/cake. This silverware is contained in a black wooden flatware box. I wish to know it's worth and also recieve some optimal resources for purchase or sale. Photos of both the rocker and Sheffield silver & box are available for email. Thank you for any information you may provide! Allegra **** ***-***-**** *******@*****.***

Hello, my name is Glenda
Answering an email or sending a text will not get pictures to me.

It is very important to be able to see what the customer has in order to give a correct informed value!
Here are instructions for sending images several ways, you can choose which one best fits you , be sure it is uploaded to your computer,

If you do not see the blue button that states attach file at the bottom of your page here are instructions to upload images ! There may be : Just "add files" box at the bottom then " send box"

Click the link: for instructions on uploading images
Or you may use this method:
Go to
click on Computer
Select the picture file from the box that pops up.
Hit open.
Click on Start Upload
And then copy the link they give you (it will look similar to this and paste it here.
Or:Send them like this: In an Email! This can take awhile depending on how busy they are at Just answer, they do forward them to me.
Send the picture to ,***@******.***, in the subject line put " Pictures for Glenda B in Antiques".
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 with , so they know who you are. If you send from a phone the email address on the phone you use has to match the email address you used to register on the justanswer site with.
Sometimes it can take over 24hrs, depending on how busy the site is. We the appraisers are not employees of the Just Answer site, we come to the site to answer questions, we do not work there. They get photos in from customers, they then send them to the correct departments ( categories, ) then they are forwarded to the appraisers. I have no control over how fast all of this happens. I will let you know as soon as they send them to me.
