Hi , I am looking for a valuation for an antique bookcase
JA: Hello. How can I help?
Customer: Hi , I am looking for a valuation for an antique bookcase
JA: The Antiques Appraiser can help. You can also send photos once I've connected you. Does the bookcase have a maker's mark or serial number?
Customer: No none at all that I can see
JA: Do you know how old the bookcase is? What condition is it in?
Customer: I'm guessing early 1900s maybe earlier, it's been restored, so excellent condition.
JA: Is there anything else important you think the Antiques Appraiser should know?
Customer: I'm looking to sell, as I've inherited it. Its lovely but just too big for me


I'd like to see the item and the marks, writing or labels on the bottom or back.
