"What's It Worth?" Skinner Auctioneers Appraisal Event

History / Heritage - Information Session

Thursday, February 27, 2020
6:00 PM-8:00 PM

2nd Floor Conference Room

Please join us for a fun evening as Skinner Auctioneers will be here to provide you with personalized object appraisal values and information. Participants may bring items from most collecting areas: porcelain, pottery, toys, dolls, silver, paintings, furniture and rugs. If you have a large or fragile piece, Skinner recommends bringing good quality photos instead of the object.

50 items total can be appraised during this event, so TICKETS ARE LIMITED (see cost and payment options below). Refreshments will be provided. The event will be held in the Conference Room.

Founded over four decades ago, Skinner offers more than 60 auctions annually. Skinner auctions reach an international audience and showcase the unique, rare, and beautiful in dozens of categories, including the fine and decorative arts, jewelry, modern design, musical instruments, science and technology, wine, and many others.

Drawing on the expertise of its specialists and its personalized service, Skinner works with individuals, institutions, and estate settlement professionals to attract outstanding items from across New England, the United States, and the world. Important sales include a Qing Dynasty vase that set the record for Chinese art sold in the U.S., works by Fitz Henry Lane and Aldro Thompson Hibbard, folk art portraiture, and Kashmir textiles. Skinner regularly sees strong results for items ranging from fine Italian violins to Cartier diamond jewelry.

Skinner is located in Boston and Marlborough, Massachusetts, Maine, New York, and Florida, and offers its customers worldwide, "anywhere" access to its sales through the SkinnerLive! real-time, online bidding service.
