Customer Question
I have a oriental...

I have a oriental case that was given to my grandmother maybe has value...dont know anything about it...cant figure out Mark on bottom...how can I know if it has value

Expert's Assistant: I always love having an appraiser look at my stuff. Sometimes its turned out to be surprisingly valuable. Tell us what else you do know and the Antiques Appraiser will be able to better assist you.

Is there anyway I can send picture and have it appraised and is there a charge

Expert's Assistant: 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.

Ok

Expert's Assistant: Is there anything else the Antiques Appraiser should be aware of?

Not that I can think of
