Customer Question
I have bought and...

I have bought and antique Grand Piano dated around 1815. It was built in New York and the original family had it brought to their house years ago. It is made of Rosewood and has the original stool and pedals and keys. It has not been restored.

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. Is there anything else the Antiques Appraiser should be aware of?

I have and original painting by Hedley Filton and signed.
