Bonhams Consignment Appraisal
10 a.m. to 1 p.m. and 2 to 6 p.m. Saturday, Sept. 17
Picked up a painting at an estate sale? Inherited a pearl necklace from grandma? Let experts determine what those treasures are worth at a Bonhams appraisal event Sept. 17-18 in the Anchorage Museum.
Appraisers from Bonhams (formerly Bonhams and Butterfields) will provide participants with verbal auction market evaluations of their property. Auction appraisals are available in these categories: fine art; furniture, decorative arts & Asian art; Native American artifacts; books and manuscripts; dolls, toys and trains; and jewelry and ladies'watches.
Participants have an option to consign and sell at auction if their items meet Bonhams' requirements. Bonhams, founded in 1793, is one of the world's oldest and largest auctioneers of fine art and antiques. In 2002, the British company acquired Butterfields, the principal auctioneer firm based on the West Coast.
Tickets for the auction appraisal event are $25 member, $30 non-member, payable to the museum.
