Thank you for your question! As a non-profit, cultural institution, the Museum cannot offer appraisal services. The Museum does not provide a monetary value for any objects, nor do we comment on rarity in object identifications.
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/auction-houses/directory/).
You can also find appraisers through several professional organizations, for instance:
- The American Society of Appraisers
- The Appraisers Association of America
Phone: 212-889-5404, ext. 14
- The International Society of Appraisers
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 do not hesitate to ask us glass-related questions in the future.
