Customer Question
I have an antique...

I have an antique baby scale that was used when I was born in Cuba. Trying to find out what it is worth and how to best sell it. Please advise.

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.

It dates on or before 1954, painted pink; there are no weights attached to it except a makeshift one my grandfather made. It is in very good condition with all working parts.

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

Not that I can think of
