What's It Worth – Antique Appraisals

YOU HAVE A NATIONAL TREASURE! Okay, maybe not. But as any fan of “Antiques Roadshow” will testify, it’s great fun to learn the history and value of the stuff we collection and cherish.

From 7 to 9, Friday evening, September 20, in the Terner Gallery of the Ocean Township Library, 701 Deal Road, expert appraisers Chris and Rose Myer will estimate the value of your treasures. For $5 an item, you’ll learn what they’re worth and why. All proceedings benefit the Eden Woolley House, home of the Township of Ocean... Historical Museum.

Together, Chris and Rose Myer have more than 60 years experience as art, estate, and antique consultants. Collectively, their credentials include a degree in art history, post graduate and certified appraisal studies, a fine arts gallery directorship, and a professional record appraising art, furniture, pottery, glass, and much more. For over two decades, the Myers have owned and operated the Shore Antique Center (previously in Point Pleasant Beach and for the last 5 years, in Allenhurst). The oral appraisal you receive for your $5 fee cannot be used for insurance purposes.

But the expert estimate of the value of your item will let you know if it is worth following up to secure the written appraisal required by insurance companies.

(If a piece you would like appraised is oversized or extremely fragile, please leave it home and bring photos!)
