Owners of old clocks, watches, First Nations art, paintings, jewelry and other antique items can get a price for their possessions during the “Attic Antiques” roadshow at the Langley Centennial Museum on Saturday, Oct. 15 from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m.
For a nominal fee, you can have up to three items assessed by a group of five experts.
“We’ve been holding these events for non-profits for the last five or six years,” says Vancouver appraiser Jim Finlay, one of the “Roadshow” members.
In the past the group has done fundraising events for The Surrey Art Centre, The Campbell River Art Gallery and Museum, the Terry Fox Library and The White Rock Museum.
“Evaluations are given in good faith and without prejudice and offered for value approximation purposes only,” Finlay warns.
“They are based on the evaluator’s best judgment and opinion and are not a representation or warranty that the items will realize those values if offered for sale.”
Finlay is the owner of Finlay Fine Art Wealth Management, an investment and consulting firm specializing in fine art.
He is an accredited member of the International Society of Appraisers, Fine Art Specialist.
His area of expertise is paintings, drawings, prints and sculpture as well as art glass and 19th C decorative porcelain.
