I have a & Howell camera with lenses that my father used…

Customer Question
I have a Bell...

I have a Bell & Howell camera with lenses that my father used back in the 50s for reel home movies. Would it be worth my time to bring it to your show?

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.

I also have in my possession a couple of small step rugs from the 1920s that may have some value

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

No, the rugs came from Italy when father lived there in the 1920s before his family moved to Brazil

Hi. My name is Diana

If you know of any legitimate place I can take these items to near me, I live in Henderson, just outside las vegas, nv.
Antique Expert: Diana F., Antiques Appraiser replied 3 months ago

Hi.

I can do just that.

.

As far as appraisers go, the most respected are those with the ISA (International Society of Appraisers), ASA (American Society of Appraisers) and the AAA (American Association of Appraisers). Appraising is a fairly specialized field, especially with asian art. There are generally less than 30 in the whole country. Most appraisers tend to be located near larger cities. I try to stay within 100 miles or at least within a state when putting together lists.

.

There's actually not a huge list in Las Vegas and the surrounding areas, but here's a list you might consider contacting:

Nugent appraisals:

9205 West Russell Road

Las Vegas, Nevada 89148
