Happy Hour Season 3

Wednesday, September 29 from 6:00 PM (EDT)
Antique Appraisals:  What is it? What's it worth? Let's do some!
Robin Sinclair

Everyone has that piece we wonder about. Maybe it came from grandmother, maybe it was found at an estate sale, maybe it was found in trash, but where ever it came from, there are three questions about it: What is it? How do you know?  What's it worth?  This ESU Happy Hour will answer those three questions about YOUR PIECE! 

As an antique appraiser with thirty years of experience,  Robin (Susan) Sinclair, Ph.D., will be looking at and evaluating pieces submitted by our members in photographs and written descriptions.  A veteran of many appraisal fairs, she has also appeared on Nashville Public Television numerous times. She will do a discussion of as many objects as possible within our time frame, so please submit your objects early!  (Please submit by the 20th of September.)  She will also show us what an appraisal is, what an appraisal is not, (very important), and how value is determined.
