I have a living room full of antiques from my grandmother…

Customer Question
I have a living...

I have a living room full of antiques from my grandmother and mother. I am 89 yrs. old so I know that some are probably 200yrs. old or more. How can I get an appraisal before I move and have an estate sale

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 the Antiques Appraiser should be aware of?

Not that I am aware of. Can you appraiser using photographs?
