I'm sorry to ask you to re-submit your photographs, but our curatorial department handles identification questions and I don't have a way to forward images from this online service. Can you re-post them to: firstname.lastname@example.org? Also, the first two images (I'm assuming they were of the cup itself) did not load for me. They may be fine attached to an e-mail, though! Also, send them any other descriptive information you may have on the piece.
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.
Please let me know if you have additional questions! Good luck with your research!
