Customer Question
I have an antique...

I have an antique (late 1800s) 3 piece bedroom suite. No bed. It has a chiffarobe, dresser with mirror and marble topped wash stand.

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. Tell us what else you do know and the Antiques Appraiser will be able to better assist you.

They are a matching set and I have used them for 40 years. The dresser mirror has some mottling. but the chiffarobe mirror is perfect. Both are beveled. The washstand has a tile back splash and a towel rack on the side.

Expert's Assistant: Is there anything else the Antiques Appraiser should be aware of?

The marble has a crack in it but could be glued easily.

I don't want to be charged the $49 if the expert is not available.
Antique Expert: Glenda B., Antiques Appraiser replied 2 months ago

Hello

I do not do live phone calls, and you will not be charged for a phone call as long as you do not accept an offer from an expert for one.

If you can send me pictures of this I can get the value for you

Customer reply replied 2 months ago
This reaks of a scam. Please only charge me for the original $5 as I will pay no more unless I hear back within the next 5 minutes.

Not all experts do phone calls, that is an upsell offer made by the justanswer site not the appraisers. Appraisers are independent of the site, we come to the site to answer questions that the customers post there. I can answer you on this message area with no problem at all if you can send pictures.
