if they had markings i would have told you - i know the drill - please connect me to another appraiser.
Antique Expert: Glenda B., Antiques Appraiser replied 3 months ago

Hello

I am sorry I did not mean to offend you, I have no idea if a customer knows the drill or not, we are not allowed to see customers accounts. Appraisers are taught to ask all pertinent questions in order to obtain the correct value for the customers, without asking we cannot discern what a value will be, we are suppose to ask for any marks, sizes, how items are put together, such as this firetruck the type of screw will determine the value, because that will show if it is a old one or one of the reproduction ones. So as I said I am sorry I asked you what I am suppose to ask, I did not mean to offend you by doing my job as I am trained to do.

Glenda,I had a question recently regarding a carved lacquered screen that you blieved to be ivory or soap stone and started the lecture about ivory.....long story short you indicated that would no longer justanswer my questions - i am fine with that Nora answered that question and the carvings were neither ivory nor soap stone so I was surprised when you answered this question.

It doesn't matter - we are not a fit. So please send my question to someone else - thanks.
Antique Expert: Glenda B., Antiques Appraiser replied 3 months ago

Wow, ok. It really did matter to me, I would never ever tell a customer I was not going to do their questions again, nor would I lecture a customer, so I wanted to clear my name on that issue. Just to let you know it is best if you want a specific expert you ask for them by name otherwise anyone can pick them up when they show up on the board.

You will have to re ask this one, we are not allowed to send questions to other experts, the site does not allow this.

Have a Blessed Evening,

Sorry I was not a fit
