How much is it worth?

The Antique Road Show has made everybody curious about their art and antiques. I love seeing your treasures, in most cases. But I ask that you email me before sending photos, tell me exactly what you are looking for – an appraisal, my opinion as Asian art gallery owner, do you want to sell, to donate, to insure? The value may vary with the purpose of an appraisal. Give me measurements, tell me  where the piece is located, when and where acquired, send me good photos. Remember that an appraisal is an opinion of value. As an appraiser in addition to  inspecting your piece for all physical conditions, I have to know as many attributed characteristics as possible in order to arrive at an opinion. Did you buy this piece yesterday on ebay? Did your family acquire it in the 1920’s in China? Has the piece been exhibited at a museum or published in a book? Everything influences the value.
