I have 2 cases that I would like to have appraised

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 have pictures...thet were given to my parents as a wedding present. They were given by the family that my grandfather worked for. Location was Lake Forest, Illinois

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

Vases...not cases
