I want an appraisal or to know how much my antique is worth--can you help me?
The American Alliance of Museums prohibits all museums from providing appraisals--it's considered a conflict of interest. If you need an official appraisal for insurance purposes, you will need to contact a licensed appraiser. (Look online) If you're interested in an informal value, try contacting a local auctioneer, looking for a similar item on an online auction site like eBay, or look for a similar item in an antique store and see how much it's for sale for.
