Guidance for your UK antique questions

Whether you’re wondering about the value of a large, Edwardian oak cupboard, or an insurance value for a small Victorian crested cruet set, it’s important to seek expert, up-to-date information.

In the UK antiques market, values change constantly, with pieces that were once wildly collectible and valuable sinking in price, and others suddenly becoming more popular and valuable.

And regardless of what you see on Antiques Roadshow, a “similar” item that you own may not actually be so similar after all. Or it could be even more valuable. The key is finding someone who actually understands UK antiques values.

You’ll find that most online antique appraisal sites require a subscription, and you may not be able to find a local appraiser, or you may not want to broadcast the fact that you own valuable pieces. In that case, you can turn to the UK antiques experts on JustAnswer at any time, day or night, from the privacy of your home. You can also ask follow-up questions as needed, without approving payment until you’re totally satisfied.

Getting UK antique assistance online

The UK antiques Experts on JustAnswer have handled a diverse range of questions, such as:

  • How much is my two-tier Edwardian pedestal lamp table worth?
  • What is the value of a silver-plated serving fork?
  • Is it worth trying to sell some Staffordshire teacups in Davenport transferware?
  • Is this machine-made tapestry English or Italian?
  • I have a pair of antique English mahogany open armchairs, Sheraton style. that I'm interested in selling. They were in 1985 at $1,800. Are they worth more or less now?

When preparing to consult with a UK antiques Expert, have the following information ready:

  • Description of the piece
  • Manufacturer and serial number if known
  • Any markings of any kind
  • Where it came from, if known

You should also be ready to provide clear photos taken straight on, against a plain background in good light. Photos of signatures or marks are especially important.
