Customer Question
Hi I have an old...
Hi I have an old kimono which my mother gave me. A neighbor we had many years ago (35+ years ago) gave my mother this old kimono which is in housecoat style that her husband had brought back from Japan while being stationed there during WWII. I would like to have it appraised before I have it framed and placed into a shadow box. I’m located in Bergen county, NJ. Could you recommend an appraiser around these parts? My email is***@******.***. Thank you!
