Customer Question
I have a small...

I have a small vase stamped Austria with a partial mark and then hand written name Ilona M——s 1912. Where can I take this to evaluate?

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.

Also I have a print “Tribute to Mother THERESA” by Husain with a note and signature from Mother THERESA dated 21-5-81. Where can I have these evaluated?

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

The print came from Paris. It was offered to raise money for orphanage
