Customer Question
I have an old...

I have an old, old cookie jar with absolutely no markings on it. Lots of crazing (crackles?). In pretty good condition for it's age. How do I determine what, who, value, etc. I've researched it and found nothing.

Expert's Assistant: I always love having an appraiser look at my stuff. Sometimes its turned out to be surprisingly valuable. Is there anything else important you think the Antiques Appraiser should know?

I guess I could be a bit more descriptive. :-) I can measure it and take a phot. Where do I submit those?
