Customer Question
Hi, Have a set...

Hi, Have a set of string silver baby spoons. How can I get an estimate, how much does it cost?

Expert's Assistant: It can cost anywhere from $10 to $100, depending on the type of issue and how much of the Antiques Appraiser's time your question is expected to take (how complex and lengthy an answer you require).

Can I send 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.

I know very, little. They are quite old, Stamped on back Sterling Silver. There are 2 letters before the SS imprint, cannot figure out.

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

They are just under 4 inches in length.
