Customer Question
I'd have a stool...

I'd have a stool, looks like a piano stool, and at the bottom of the seat is a cast iron with a date may 6, 1873,..needs repair in one of the legs.

Expert's Assistant: I always love having an appraiser look at my stuff. Sometimes its turned out to be surprisingly valuable. Tell us what else you do know and the Antiques Appraiser will be able to better assist you.

Well when I bought and old piano (1944 made) my sister inlaw also give me that stool , but later I notice that the stool was from a different era.

Expert's Assistant: Is there anything else important you think the Antiques Appraiser should know?

No , that's all I know.
