Customer Question

hi my name is ***** ***** have seven sets of 6ea of green MURANO glassware. 6-shot, 6-red wine, 6-white whine, 6-beer, 6-brandy, 6-champane, and 6-whiskey. model VERDINO in the original packaging pre 1973. i can't sem to find them anywhere online. what would it cost to have them appraised?
JA: You just pay a $5 deposit now and the rest only when you get a reply from the antiques appraiser. All of this is 100% satisfaction guaranteed, so you can get a refund if you're not happy for any reason.
Customer: how much would "the rest" be?
JA: I always love having an appraiser look at my stuff. Sometimes its turned out to be surprisingly valuable. Is there anything else the antiques appraiser should be aware of?
Customer: how much would the cost be after they are appraised?
JA: I'm not sure of the exact price, but there's only a $5 deposit. The rest of the price information will be on the page I send you to.
Customer: what if i am not able to pay the rest? i would like them appraised but i will need the total cost due to limited funds.

Hello and welcome! My name is Doris.
I have been an antiques and art collector as well as dealer and appraiser for over 56 years.
I will be pleased to help you. Please know I do not send pop-ups.

Photos are almost always required to give an accurate assessment.

Can you send me at least one photo?

To send photos you may use the "add files" 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.

Have you checked on the charges? I do not want to answer here and have you required to pay more than you are able.

I agreed on the 5 dollar charge. I don't understand any further charges. I understand the 5 dollar charge to converse with a professional
Expert:  Doris replied 9 months ago.

I am sorry you have the impression that you will have answer for $5.

We pros do not set the charges. Those are set by the site - Just Answer.

We only get paid a portion of what they charge you but we are paid by JA, not by you directly.

You will need to check with the site reps at one of the phone numbers I gave or go to
