Antique Appraisal 

Bring your antique/collectible item to the St. Louis County Heritage & Arts Center (the Depot) for a free appraisal on Wednesday, March 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 rotundaPlease 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.
