Customer Question
I have 3 x...

I have 3 x (Year) 1791 Alabaster lamp shades, and I am wondering where I would start to try and get these appraised

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 previously owned a Lighting shop, which I acquired these. They have an etching of 1791, I think that is the year they were made

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

They are approximately 150mm in diameter. They are pure alabaster
