Second opinion] Where could I go to get an appraisal and offer for a Savonarola chair?

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.

What information are you looking for? I believe it to be walnut, fully carved back rest, the arms finish with carved balls with wood tings around them. I would guess by the detail and some wear, early 20th or later 19th century. Do you receive pictures.
