Assistant: Hi. What is your issue regarding?
Customer: I have a coalport minuture cup, saucer and tea plate in green - do you know if it has any value and where would be the best place to sell it. I also have a Mason's Ironstone trinket dish "Empress" pattern. I also have a large canvas by Loran Speck which is a hand painted extended image, not sure if that is you're field but if you could let me know who to speak to , many thanks
Assistant: I always love having an appraiser look at my stuff. Sometimes its turned out to be surprisingly valuable. Is there anything else the Antiques Appraiser should be aware of?
Customer: Where would I find an appraiser for these items?

My name is ***** ***** I'd love to help.
Use the +Add Files feature next to the SEND button to add photos of the item, including maker's marks.
The feature works best when you add ONE picture, put a word in the text box, hit send, then do the next.

Hi every time I try to send this with attachments it fails?

It works best if you only do one picture, hit send, then do the next.

Yes, just write any word.

You can also text pictures (only) to my phone of adding here does not work.
