Customer Question
I have an Indian...

I have an Indian Vase inherited from my Aunt years ago. Is this valuable or should I just give it to Goodwill?

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 can attach a picture. My Wealthy Aunt lived in southern CA for 50 years--like from the 1930's until she moved back to In in 1980's. She gave me many beautiful items but this "vase" was among the things she collected that were signed. I gave it to my son until he gave it back.. I have had it in the trash but just thought maybe. The item seems to be useless to me.

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

Yes, can I send a picture on this email?

They get photos in from customers, they then send them to the correct departments ( categories, ) then they are forwarded to the appraisers. I have no control over how fast all of this happens. I will let you know as soon as they send them to me.
