HelloPearl,

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 have a beautiful Cornelius fur coat, my mother's from the late 30s. It is in perfect condition and I would like to know its value for insurance purposes.

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

Tony.
