I have several spoons that are sterling silver and are dated…

Customer Question
I have several spoons...

I have several spoons that are sterling silver and are dated 1858 to 1902 on back of spoon. They are from my Great- Grandmothers era. She was born in 1861.

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.

They have a floral design on the front and a little shorter than the modern spoons

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

I don't know anything else. They are very beautiful.

Why did you charge my account with $48.00? I just got a call from my bank checking on it.

who do I talk to? Also would that have been a correct amount? I didn't understand that amount?
Antique Expert: Rarewares, Antiques and Collectibles Researcher replied 5 months ago

There should be a site map with a Customer Service link at the bottom of the main webpage.

I don't know how or what the customers are charged since I don't work at the site.
