Get A Fair Deal For Your Antiques!
If you are planning to sell your antiques and are worried to get its right value, come to us, as we ascertain its right worth after critically examining its details before finally purchasing it. All you have to do is send us an email with photos of the items with accompanying descriptions. It is best to take the pictures in a well-lit room, preferably outside in the early morning or evening. Please do not use any flash photography, as the shine can often distort the quality. The better quality your photographs are, the quicker we will be able to get back to you to offer you the highest possible price. You can do this on our Contact Us page or call us today at 941-726-0401.
Just because the piece of jewelry you have may not be pretty, does not mean it isn’t worth anything! We accept all of the following types of pieces:
- Art Nouveau
- Art Deco
- Silver & Gold
Price of Sterling Silver
The price of your antique silver will depend on the type that it is—most likely it is either plated or sterling silver. If there are no hallmark stamps with “925” or indications it is sterling, it may be platted, meaning it is made primarily of another metal, such as copper, and top coated with a silver layer. The only way to really determine what it is worth, though, is to get an antique market analysis by industry experts.
Want to Sell Your Antiques?
To offer you a fair deal for your antiques, we also provide you options of both brokering and consignment services. If you choose to broker your item, this involves generating an analysis of the market value of your item. Then we will work with you to decide how to proceed with the sale of your item either by working with a collector, dealer or through an auction. We will take a small commission on your sale as well as the cost of the initial analysis.
Consignment allows you as the seller to sell your piece on a national level through international shows and internet sales that we participate in. The cost of the contracted commission will be deducted afterwards and then will sell the piece on your behalf and you will get the balance of the sale after the commission.
