St. Clement's Island Museum to Host Appraiser Fair
What are your precious heirlooms worth? You can find out when the St. Mary's County Museum Division presents an Appraiser Fair at the St. Clement's Island Museum on Saturday, January 26 from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. It’s almost like the Antique Roadshow!
Expert appraisers will represent the following categories: fine arts, jewelry, vintage dolls, and U.S. coins. The fine arts category encompasses a broad spectrum of items, including ceramics, pottery, glassware, artwork/paintings, music boxes, and curiosity items. Items in this category are limited to two items per person for a fee of $5 per item. Other category fees are $5 for the first two items and $10 per item thereafter. (Ten U.S. Coins will be evaluated per $5 fee.)
Those attending the fair are requested to bring only those items which can be hand-carried. Space is limited and items will be viewed on a first come, first served basis. Appraisals are not certified however one can make arrangements for a certified appraisal at a later date and time.
A representative from the Washington Conservation Guild will also be on hand to offer advice on how to preserve and store your precious heirlooms, photographs, newspapers, antique items, etc. Proper storage and conservation will extend the life and value of your items and heirlooms!
Guests can also enjoy a free chocolate tasting inside the Crab Claw Museum Store while they wait. Discover the purity of 18th century chocolate from American Heritage Chocolate, made by the Historic Division of MARS, Inc. This chocolate is available in block, powder and sticks.
