Customer Question

I am seeking a valuation on a matching pair of lamp/light
JA: The Antiques Appraiser can help. You can also send photos once I've connected you. Does the lamp have a maker's mark or serial number?
Customer: i will check. Is there a charge for this?
JA: It's £5 for a 7-day trial. After that, your monthly membership will be £35. Do you know how old the lamp is? What condition is it in?
Customer: 1920s light fitting and standing lamp pair. Perfect condition and working order. Never left the room they are in
JA: Is there anything else important you think the Antiques Appraiser should know?
Customer: not to my knowledge

The option to leave a bonus comes up right after completing the survey. Then it quickly disappears (it is on the desktop version of the site only).
I would be grateful for the consideration.
