Upcoming event offers antique appraisals for Rossland and area

If you have antiques lying around that you were hoping to get appraised, an upcoming event could very well be your chance.

On March 1 and 2, the Rossland Historical Museum and Archives Association and the Trail Historical Society are bringing in art and antiques expert Peter S. Blundell.

Blundell will assess items such as antique bowls, silver tea sets, paintings and furniture. He will offer a verbal opinion of value.

There are also some things that he will not appraise, which are jewelry, coins, stamps, guns and wristwatches.  He will, however appraise pocket watches and swords.

To avoid having to bring in large furniture, Blundell suggests bringing in a loose piece like a drawer instead of the whole thing, as a photo suffices as long as the wood grain is visible.

The event is Antiques in the Attic - What's it Worth and will be held at the Warfield Community Hall on the Friday and Saturday.

Spectators are also welcome, with a $5 entrance fee.

To have item appraised, book an appointment with Sarah Benson from the Trail Historical Society, at 250-364-0829. Each 15-minute time slot allows for up to three items for the $35 fee. Call Benson early, as all appointments require pre-booking and pre-payment.

If you require a formal written appraisal, call or email Blundell at 250-542-4540 or info@blundellartandantiques.com in advance and he will try to answer any questions.
