Customer Question
I have an antique...

I have an antique dresser that I am going to get rid of. It was given to me over fifty years ago by my great aunt who was a dealer. It is in fair condition and I know it could be valuable but I don't want to drag it around with me anymore. I just want to get an idea of it's worth because I am going to donate it to Goodwill or Salvation Army and could use the income tax deduction next year.

Expert's Assistant: Don't you just love the idea of finding something valuable in your attic? I do, but I think all I have up there is junk my brothers abandoned before they left home. Always a good idea to check things with the Antiques Appraiser, though. Is there anything else important you think the Antiques Appraiser should know?

I have an antique dresser that I am going to donate to Goodwill / Salvation Army. I would like an idea of it's value so that I can get the tax credit for it.
