Customer Question
Hi Pearl! Do you...

Hi Pearl! Do you know of any appraisers of glassware within 50 miles of Cedar Rapids, Iowa? Thank you!

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 have 1 piece of glassware that I would like to know what it is, who made it & what value it may have. It is 12" square, 3/4" deep, 5 odd-shaped compartments & coated with gold leaf in a grapevine pattern.

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

There are no markings to be seen anywhere.

The next step would be to add some photos.
Use the small blue document icon (or the blue camera icon if you are on mobile) where you write back to me.
It works best if you add one, write a short description in the text area, send, then do the next photo.

HiCustomer Did you ever hear from Customer Service? If not, then this is a wild idea - perhaps you could make the journey out here to Cedar Rapids, Iowa to see the glass piece in person. However, that might be an expensive trip on your part. Maybe there is another way. Thanks!
Antique Expert: Rarewares, Antiques and Collectibles Researcher replied 9 days ago

I never got photos in my email.

Customer service said they would reach out to you and I guess they did not.

The only other way I can think of is texting from your phone to my phone.

I will send that offer in case that would work.
