Customer Question
I have an old...

I have an old fireplace mantle from my husbands family. The only info I have is that it came out of a tavern in Milwaukee. I have some pictures and am wondering what it is worth?

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.

I don't know anything else. It is old but how old I don't know. Is there a place to attach pictures?

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

Not really. It is very pretty and it has been a waste that it has been in our garage for over 30 years

Hi, my name is*****'m a certified appraiser, and I'd be happy to help.

Is it possible to upload photos of the item, including any and all marks?

If you don’t have photos, I can do my best without them—just let me know—but it’s more accurate with photos.

There should be a +ADD FILES feature next to our Send button.

If not, then there is a paperclip above the reply box that you click to attach photos.

The photos won’t upload unless you also have at least one word in the text box! You won’t see the attached photo along with the text before you post it, but you will see the paperclip or attach button turn green.

If that doesn’t work, please reach out to Customer Service for help at no additional charge:

I look forward to working with you.

Sincerely, Jennifer
