Customer Question
I have received several...

I have received several items mostly figurines etc from uncles estate, some from occupied Japan, how can I see if any are of value?

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. Tell us what else you do know and the Antiques Appraiser will be able to better assist you.

I have several figurines from uncles estate made in occupied Japan, how do I find out if they are of any monetary value?

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

I wouid like your help please

Use the +Add Files feature next to the SEND button to upload photos of the item, including maker's marks.
The feature works best when you add ONE picture, put a word in the text box, hit send, then do the next.
