Customer Question
I have a number...

I have a number of antiques that I feel I should move on to collectors or enthusiasts since my kids aren't really interested. The things I know have value include:

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. Tell us what else you do know and the Antiques Appraiser will be able to better assist you.

A 1850 trundle bed

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

A 300 year old toby mug, a 200 year old toby mug, glassware including a moon and star lamp, antique marbles, mama and papa figurines (known to be well over 100 years old but am not sure of the composition) a gone with the wind lamp. There are probably other things as well since I don't have everything out in plain sight.

I can send the picture. Where do I send it? I don't know how to transfer a phone picture to the computer; haven't had great luck doing so in the past. Advice?
Antique Expert: Glenda B., Antiques Appraiser replied 8 months ago

Yes, what phone do you have?

The number above is the correct number
Antique Expert: Glenda B., Antiques Appraiser replied 8 months ago

I am sorry I do not do live phone calls, I believe the appraisals should be in writing this way they can be printed and do not cost more.

I just paid for the phone call. I really would prefer the call. Am I being charged anyway?
Antique Expert: Glenda B., Antiques Appraiser replied 8 months ago

Hello

I am sorry I do not do phone calls, if you like I can opt out of this and perhaps someone else does phone calls and will pick this up. They will also need to see pictures in order to value this.
