Expert's Assistant: I always love having an appraiser look at my stuff. Sometimes its turned out to be surprisingly valuable. Is there anything else important you think the Antiques Appraiser should know?

It has French doors & a beaded chandelier in the dining room. I would like to the value of this item. Thanks. Kathy
