Customer Question
I have a metal...

I have a metal elephant that i have no idea where it is from or if it has value. Is there a way I can send you a picture?

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.

It was my Father's and when he lived in Japan, he traveled a lot.

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

I don't know much about it, sorry
