I have a Shelley candlestick and would like to know what it’s worth
JA: The Antiques Appraiser can help. You can also send photos once I've connected you. Does the candlestick have a maker's mark or serial number?
Customer: Yes. It has Shelley in a green shape and made in England underneath. It also has numbers on the base.
JA: Do you know how old the candlestick is? What condition is it in?
Customer: No, I don’t know how old it is. It’s in fairly good condition. Black with a wide rim of green leaves, pink rose and blue flowers. The number underneath reads Rd.673706 one side and on another(###) ###-####
JA: Is there anything else important you think the Antiques Appraiser should know?
Customer: There is a hairline crack on the base but is very minimal.
