Where do you live? Emmaus
What did you bring for appraisal? “I brought a brass kerosene lamp with a lamp shade, although I am not sure if the shade belongs to this lamp. I figure they [the appraisers] should know.”
Tell me about this item and why it is special to you: “This was my grandfather’s and has been passed down to me. It was made in the U.S.A. at the turn of the century. I would like to know more about, if the appraisers can help.”
What were the auctioneer’s comments? “This is an unusual oil lamp with a candlestick shape to it. I am not really sure if the shade belongs to this piece. The lamp probably originally had a glass globe on it.”
What was his appraisal of your item? About $75 as is.
How do you feel about that? “I am pleased with the appraisal. I was just curious if they would know something more, but they didn’t.”
Do you have any plans for your item? “I definitely plan to keep it. It was my grandfather’s.”
