Customer Question
I need an appraiser...

I need an appraiser for antique English furniture. The pieces are in New Jersey. My name is***** cell(###) ###-####

Expert's Assistant: Don't you just love the idea of finding something valuable in your attic? I do, but I think all I have up there is junk my brothers abandoned before they left home. Always a good idea to check things with the Antiques Appraiser, though. Tell us what else you do know and the Antiques Appraiser will be able to better assist you.

These were appraised by Zia Gharary in the 90's and one piece a breakfront was appraised $25000. But it has not been appraised again. The piece is in storage all these years.

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

I also have antique chandeliers. but the breakfront needs a new apparaisal.

Antique English chandelier JA: Don't you just love the idea
I was hoping you could help me with a question/estimate of an antique English chandelier. My parents purchased a home 10 years ago and have no price information on the two antique chandeliers hanging in their house. Unfortunately, last week one fell and shattered while being cleaned. Therefore, the search begins on the value... I am attaching a picture of the remaining chandelier, which is approximately 4 ft wide and 5 ½ ft long. The previous owner stated she bought the chandelier in New Orleans, but the business no longer exists. They were told there are only 5 in existence and the other three hang in the TAJ Hotel in Boston (formally the Ritz Carlton). I have also found this exact chandelier on the cover of The English Glass Chandelier by Martin Mortimer ( I am attaching this picture as well).Any light you could shed on this would be greatly appreciated!! … read more
