How do I go about assessing a value to an antique brass

How do I go...

How do I go about assessing a value to an antique brass chandelier with hand wired blown glass globes

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.

I have a picture but that is all I know about it

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

If they want to see a picture I'll be happy to provide
