Do you appraise elephant ivory jewelry and carvings? Brought back to the US during WWII.

I am sorry to say that the state of California has determined that selling of any ivory, no matter the age, is illegal. Therefore, I think that since it cannot be sold it will be very hard to determine a value. That said, if you wish to bring it you can and they will do their best, but do not try to sell it to the dealers in the show. You would probably have to sell it out of state.

I have an antique dresser ( can put on trailer & bring down from Ramona ) that has a pencil written statement in a drawer stating that it was cleaned on the day of the queen of England's coronation in 1953 ), It does not have the original hardware... would this be worth bringing down to get appraised? thank you

I am a retired antique lover and we have so many antiques that we have collected throughout our years. A lot of antique furniture from an antique furniture business we once had to family heirlooms, amazing glass pieces, antique cars and so much more. We are down sizing and liquidating most everything, can I bring photos with me for rough appraisals or do you have another suggestion?

We have an original painting that was given to thank my great grandfather, an MD, for his visit to China. Is there someone who can appraise this beautiful art?

Reply
Michael Grimes

Yes, that should be no problem. Even if they are unsure we have other art dealers who should be able to help you.

Reply
Michael Grimes

Yes, appraisal should be no problem. I would refer repair to either JC Dumas or Angela Mcdowell.

I have a doll set of three (bride and two bridesmaids) I have had since the late 1930's or early 40's. They still have the creator's tag on the wrist= 'Madame Alexander' made in NYC, USA. They are in good condition. Also have four storybook dolls from the 1040's. Would these be valuable enough to have appraised?
