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 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.
