Ask an Appraisals Question, Get an Answer ASAP!
Thanks for the enquiry. In order to help you, can you tell me what area of the country you are in please. Your items do sound to be the sorts of things that are popular in the market at the present time. I know from the house visits that I do that people in your situation firstly want to understand what they have got and then if they choose to sell, they just want a fair price. Basically they don't want to make a big mistake. I never charge for example to visit houses and discuss the contents with the owners. It is unlikely that I am near enough to help you though. Please reply and if you can upload just one or two photos that would help. Sounds very interesting. Greg
Just looking at your photos. Greg
Well quite a mixture! One or two interesting items here and a few that are at the cheaper end of the market.
The large decanter would sell but for less than £10. The glass (dragon) and the moulded glass decanter are boot fair or charity shop items.
Your loose stamps are of very low value.
The colourful coloured postcards are too modern for collectors. The best period for post cards is around the first world war (before 1920 anyway). You can get the dates from the postmarks. See if you have any of these old ones. Many of your look lie 1960s. Here's an idea to prevent me having to write a book and to prevent you having to pay more to speak to me. On Greg Hall Antiques you will find my phone number. Give me a ring and I will talk you through your pictures.*********** I am there now.
