Westport Woman’s Club hosts public Antique Appraisal Day

May 8, 2019

The Westport Woman’s Club will offer the public an Antique Appraisal Day on Saturday, June 1.

Do you have a family heirloom or an old painting that your grandmother always said was valuable? A piece of jewelry or sterling that you have never had appraised? Are you the caretaker of an antique doll whose value is unknown? Bring them with you and let a professional, experienced specialist give you an on-site verbal appraisal.

Event Chair Deb Fratino shared in a news release that the current market for certain items is highly desirable: men’s vintage wristwatches, mid-century art and furniture, Chinese jades, porcelains, and collectibles of many varieties to name a few.

Larger items and furniture can be evaluated from photos. Numerous well-lit photos with approximate dimensions of the object, possibly a drawer, will allow the appraiser to be more precise. Please no postage stamps or stamp collections.

For $25, attendees will receive a verbal appraisal for up to three items by the appropriate specialist for your item. If there are four or more items, these additional items may be appraised for an added fee of $10 each.

The profits from this event will help support the many community service projects of the Westport Woman’s Club: Scholarship and Community Services Grants, Food Gift Certificates, the Food Closet and Holiday Meal Programs.

WWC clubhouse, 44 Imperial Ave., Westport. Saturday, June 1, 10 a.m.-4 p.m. 203-227-4240, debfratino@aol.com
