Thank you for contacting us with your question. The best path for you to take may be to directly contact an appraiser or appraisal service and speak with them regarding how items are assigned a value. As a non-profit, cultural institution, the Museum cannot offer appraisal services.
You can 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 ext. 14; (online) http://www.appraisersassoc.org
- The International Society of Appraisers: (phone) 312-981-6778; (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.
The Corning Museum of Glass is currently closed to the public effective March 16 through April 22, 2020, as a precautionary measure for public health and safety. As a result, resources available to answer your questions are extremely limited. During this closure, you may be interested in searching our Ask a Glass Question FAQs or reviewing our Research Guides on various topics. We also highly recommend checking out The Corning Museum of Glass on YouTube for hours of artist demonstrations, lectures, and special events. Thank you for your patience.
