Customer Question
I have some...

I have some fine antique furniture, Lewis Mittman, and art nouveau silver overlay serving pieces, and waterford and american brilliant unusual pieces . I am looking for help on how to sell these, and whom to sell them to

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. Is there anything else important you think the Antiques Appraiser should know?

I would like to work with an appraiser and I would also like the appraiser to tell me the best way(s) of selling these items.

Hello,

I highly recommend contacting the company Everything But the House. They conduct every step of an estate sale and place them up for online bidding on an international platform. A representative will go to your home and handle the whole process for you. Here is a link to their site for you http://www.ebth.com
