Recently, a piece from...

Recently, a piece from my dining room set was destroyed. My insurance. Ompanys is requesting that I put a value on the piece. I have no idea of its value. It was my grandparents set, dating from early 1900. I do have pictures if that helps.

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 the Antiques Appraiser should be aware of?

Not that I know of.
