You've always wondered, what if that thing is worth something. Grandma made sure she gave it to me and told me to take care of it. This is your chance to see if it is a family thing, or something you might want to sell for good money.

Bring your antique/collectible item to the St. Louis County Heritage & Arts Center for a free appraisal on Wednesday, November 15, 2017. The St. Louis County Historical Society has arranged for Dan Sershon of Northland Estate Services and Denny Mager of Northern Specialty, both experts in antique appraisal, to be at your service from noon until 3 PM in the rotunda. Please arrive no later than 2:30 PM to register in person.

You may bring up to two items per person for an informal oral identification and evaluation of each antique. If the piece is too large or fragile to be hand-carried, clear photographs with a description of any marks and labels will be sufficient.

Past participants have thoroughly enjoyed the appraiser’s comments on what is always an interesting assortment of antiques and collectibles. ARCO coffee is available while you wait.

This session is part of an on-going public education program offered by the St. Louis County Historical Society. Sponsorship does not imply endorsement of this or any other estate/appraisal service, and museum staff is prohibited by professional ethics from making financial appraisals.

Call (218) 733-7568 for further information.

There will not be an Antique Appraisal in December 2017. The next one will on January 17, 2018.
