Customer Question
Hello, My cousin has...

Hello, My cousin has several brass rubbings which she and her husband did all over Europe. I would like to get one but want to pay her for it. One in particular was done in a Luxembourg church (mid 1300's). Could you possibly give me a value as to what I should pay? Thank you!

Expert's Assistant: It can cost anywhere from $10 to $100, depending on the type of issue and how much of the Antiques Appraiser's time your question is expected to take (how complex and lengthy an answer you require). I always love having an appraiser look at my stuff. Sometimes its turned out to be surprisingly valuable. Is there anything else the Antiques Appraiser should be aware of?

Thank you for your reply! Do you have any suggestions as to how to frame them? Is framing a special process?
