Customer Question
We inherited a collection...

We inherited a collection of mostly sub Saharan African art from a great aunt. There are so many pieces. She was in the PEace Corp , collected all herself. Who do we turn to for valuing these pieces? Some were for trade, but many were not. She lived among the indigenous people.

Expert's Assistant: I always love having an appraiser look at my stuff. Sometimes its turned out to be surprisingly valuable. Is there anything else important you think the Antiques Appraiser should know?
