Customer Question
I have a Royal...

I have a Royal Doulton Humidor Circa early 1900s It has hallmarked silver band on stem and thelid and surrounds It has a picture of thre old men smoking pipes on each side It is in pristine condition except for a small dent on the collar siver. It has been in my family since my parents were married in 1920. I have been lead to believe it could be valuable and worry about insurance.

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 don't think so I have seen one advertised for sale from Royal Dalton museum it from 1902 bbut no pricing available
