As a non-profit, cultural institution, The Museum cannot offer appraisal services. If you wish to determine the value of your glass piece, you may want to consult a reliable local antique dealer, or send a photograph of the object to a reputable auction house (see ArtNet’s directory of auction houses worldwide, http://www.artnet.com/auctionhousedirectory/index.aspx).
You can also find appraisers through several professional organizations: The American Society of Appraisers (phone) 1-800-ASA-VALU (online) http://www.appraisers.org; The Appraisers Association of America (phone) 212-889-5404 (online) http://www.appraisersassoc.org; and The International Society of Appraisers (phone) 312-224-2567 (online) http://www.isa-appraisers.org.
Your local library may have a subscription to
Maloney’s Antiques and Collectibles Resource Directory, which provides listings of appraisers by type of collectible.
While the Museum does not provide appraisals, our curatorial staff may be able to help you identify your object if you need help with identification. Please send digital photographs, along with any written information you may have on the object, to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Please let me know if you have any further questions.
