Antiques Appraisal Day At Heritage

Heritage Museums & Gardens in Sandwich will host an antiques appraisal day on Saturday, August 16, from 10 AM to 2 PM. Experts from Bonhams, art and antique auctioneers, will be at Heritage to discuss and evaluate an assortment of objects. Individuals can meet with an appraiser and receive a verbal assessment of up to five antique or collectible items.

The appraisal fee, which includes museum admission, is $25 for the first item and $15 for each additional item. As part of Heritage member appreciation day, members will receive up to two appraisals free of charge.

Participants are being asked to make an appointment to facilitate the appraisal process; call Amy Corcoran at Bonhams at 617-742-0909 to schedule one.


Bonhams will be providing verbal appraisals of fair market value and/or auction estimates. Specialists will be on hand to provide appraisals of fine art, Asian Art, American and European decorative arts including silver, porcelain, needlework and furniture as well as jewelry. They are also able to provide appraisals of objects from other categories from a photograph; this includes items such as coins, guns, swords, watches, books, rugs, and movie and rock ’n roll memorabilia by consulting with additional specialists within their firm. A follow-up call will be necessary.

Individuals who wish to have large furniture pieces assessed are also asked to bring in a photograph. If necessary, a follow-up appointment can be arranged to further inspect the item in person.

All items should be portable for transportation from the parking lot to the Heald Center, as Heritage is unable to provide transportation assistance for items.

Heritage Museums & Gardens is at 67 Grove Street in Sandwich.
