Historical Society hosts Appraisal Day

No need to wait for the Antiques Roadshow to come to Detroit in June–bring your family heirlooms and treasures to the Rochester-Avon Historical Society’s Antique Appraisal Day on Sunday, March 3 from noon-4 p.m. at the Rochester Community House, 816 Ludlow and have them professionally appraised.

Ten appraisers who have offered to donate their time and expertise will assess books, manuscripts, coins, clocks, glass, pottery, china, lighting, furniture, guns, military items, teddy bears, dolls, jewelry, Asian art, antique weapons, engravings, needlepoint, paintings, prints, Native American art (available until 2 p.m.) and more. With all of that expertise, you’re sure to discover important information about your antique treasures and collectibles.

All items are appraised at fair market value. For larger items, simply bring photographs of the piece and any details that may be helpful to the appraiser.

Admission is free. Appraisals (verbal only) are $5 per item. Proceeds benefit the Rochester-Avon Historical Society’s mission to help preserve, collect and interpret the history of the greater Rochester area for present and future generations.
