Customer Question
We have an antique...

We have an antique sterling silver large sugar bowl with the spoons hanging on the bowl. Do you know how much this would be worth?

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.

Our organization is having a silent auction this Sat. and a gentlemen came in and donated this yesterday, his wife passed away and he did not want it, but I think it could be quite valuable.

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

I don't have it in with me it is at the club house, but I know it is listed in a silver book that another lady had.
