Free Antique Appraisals



Do you own antiques or collectibles but have no idea of their worth?

It can be very expensive to find out the value of your antiques. Why not use the internet to find out more information about your antiques and collectibles, or even post the item for sale and find potential buyers of your antiques (all for free!).

Click here for a free antique appraisal. Submit a description and a photo of your antique and find collectors willing to help out by estimating their worth.

Are you a dedicated antique collector? Help out fellow antique collectors by submitting your estimate of the below antiques. AntiquesNavigator offers this service completely free of charge, but other than antique padlocks we are not experts on all antiques and collectibles. If you own an extremely rare antique that belongs in the Smithsonian, you're probably better off putting the antique up for auction with Sotherby! However, if you have more commons antiques and collectibles and are curious to their worth, then we can help! AntiquesNavigator does not guarantee the accuracy of the free appraisal, so it might be a good idea to wait until you get at least a couple of responses from our readers before deciding the value of your antique or collectible.

Antique Toy Rabbit

Submitted by: Tom
Main Image

PLEASE HELP



Hello,

I recently purchased this rabbit at an estate sale and would primarily be interested to learn more about it, i.e. maker, time period, etc. From what I can tell, the rabbit as glass red eyes, which are connected to wires, old pins appear to connect the clothes, the rabbit it stitched together with rather large seams. The "shoes" have four words written on them, I can't make out the first two, but the latter two appear to say mercanized cotton. Lastly, the body is that of a cloth doll with everything sewn together. I would greatly appreciate any information you could provide regarding this interesting piece.

Thanks in advance.

Hi Daniel,

The iron cross was normally issued to Prussian and later German soldiers as a military decoration. Since the Iron Cross was issued over several different periods of history, it was annotated with the year indicating the era in which it was issued. Your cross was probably issued in World War I.

Since your cross is too large to be warn as a medalian and it doesn't have a pin back (I guess you don't show the reverse side so I assume it's smooth), I'm fairly certain this is a funeral decoration. It either was on a memorial or fell off the casket before burial.

As far as worth, I would say it might fetch $100-$200 dollars, but it could sell for more.

Hi Daniel,

I can't tell you much about this pill box. I can't find another one for sale or similar one that has sold. Silver pill boxes usually sell for around $50-100 dollars, but your pill box appears older than most. I would value it around $250-350 dollars.

Maybe one of antiquesnavigators readers will have more info on this one.

Thanks for the submissions!

I need some help in learning the value of a pitcher that we have.

It is a Sharon (Cabbage Rose) GREEN Pitcher ( No lips)

Thank you! Joan

Your Sharon Cabbage Rose pattern depression glass pitcher was produced by the Federal Glass Company between 1935 and 1939. The pattern came in three colors, amber, pink and green (a few pieces came in clear).

I had no trouble finding the pink variety, here are some examples that have sold for around $30-$50 dollars.

The only green cabbage rose pitcher without ice lips I found was this one that sold for $550

Assuming your pitcher is original (they made reproductions in the 1970s) and it doesn't have any chips or other damage, your might have a rare piece of depression glass on your hands!

If it is in perfect condition, I have seen them sell from between $300 to $400. There are more than one style of this pitcher - this also changes the value.

Presidential Tray

Submitted by: Denise
Main Image

PLEASE HELP



I have been doing research on an item that came into our shop recently. The shop is Objects Found, a consignment and antique shop in Catonsville, Maryland. The item being researched is a very old metal (tin?) tray with pictures of the first 24 presidents on the surface. The tray contains an error, as it lists McKinley as the 24th president and does not list Cleveland as being President twice. I found the picture of the tray on your website. I have only been unable to locate information on this item at a website called Design Rocket, she is a private owner and is only showing others her pictures, and the Rare & Manuscript Collection at Cornell University.

Can you give me any further information on this item? If you know...how rare is it? Do you know it's approximate value? Is it really circa 1897 even though the tray has the dates of Christmas 1901 and New Year's 1902 on the sides? We are trying to value it for consignment sale and any information you could give me would be greatly appreciated. It seems to be quite rare and we are very interested in learning more about it.

Thank you so much,

Hi Denise,

That's a nice tray!! Very Vintage!!!

I would say it's from the turn of the century, but I couldn't find any more information about it than you did.

As far as it's value, I'd only be guessing. I've never seen one for sale but I would guess given it's age around $200-$300 dollars or more. It's all about finding the right buyer.

Good luck selling it!

I have a tumbler set with pitcher. The tumblers (5) are bulbous. I'm not sure if they are depression glass or not but I would love to know something about them. They were my mother's. How do I go about it? I have looked on ebay and have been through several pages on this site so far and haven't found anything. Is it possible to send a picture of them? Thank you.

Right after I sent in the appraisal, I happened on the tumblers on Antiquesnavigator.com.

They are 1936 Dunbar Aramis rings pattern tumblers. The picture I saw (page 2 of Depression glass--tumblers) had a matching pitcher. My set has a different pitcher.

Estimated Value submitted by Tim

Thanks Jack,

Here's a link to a set of Dunbar ARAMIS Rings Dunbar ARAMIS Rings glasses for our readers.

Estimated Value submitted by

You can find these iridescent glasses in the published 1938 catalog of Dunbar glass, printed by West Virginia Museum of American Glass. In the catalogs, back then in the 1930s, "Aramis" name wasn't used; this nickname must have come later after the war, likewise, Porthos, Athos for other Dunbar glass sets....why three musketeers? Jack, any history of when your mum got this set? The catalog shows glasses and pitchers could be bought separately. When assembled together in the catalog, it is not this pitcher which is featured, but another which has a shape more like the tumblers--lots of horizontal ribs. There are other Dunbar tumblers which match your pitcher better. They started doing them in 1931 as featured in the 1931 catalog.





Antique Charlotte Doll

PLEASE HELP



Hello, I am trying to find the value of a beautiful and rare Frozen Charlotte doll I have that is 14 1/2 inche tall, blonde and with blush. I have searched online and can find nothing like her.

Do you know where I can look for this?

Thanx

Submit your estimate of worth

Estimated Value submitted by AntiquesNavigator Staff

Hi Lorin,

You have what is known as a frozen charlotte/charlie doll made in Germany. They were produced from the 1860's to the 1930's and were meant to be played with while taking a bath. Therefore, they are sometimes called a Bathing doll.

Your doll is not signed, which is not unusual for these dolls. A few german companies produced these dolls, including Conta & Bohme, King & Simon Halbig.

What's unusual about your Charlotte doll is its size. At 14-1/2 inches, it's very large. A few Charlotte dolls in the 8 inch range have sold on Ebay recently for around $200 dollars, but your particular doll might be much rarer. Here are some examples of Charlotte dolls that have sold by auction:

11 Inch Charlotte Doll

Antique Frozen Charlotte Doll

Antique Frozen Charlotte /Charlie Doll Black Hair

It's a beautiful doll and it has a unique history.

Thank you for sharing it with us.





Old Locks

Tim
br> Here are three of my locks. #1 is from edwards co. but donít have any info on it. looks like it would take a flat steel key. #2 is old with no markings that I can find. it is steel with a brass cover for the key. it works. #3 looks like it is cast brass there is 740 stamped on the hasp very small. no key looks like it would take a flat key also. the lock I would most like a key for is a yale ordanance dept lock. I found one on ebay with a key and chain but it was sold.

Submit your estimate of worth

Estimated Value submitted by Tim

Hi Tom,

They're pretty common locks. The oldest is probaby the smoke house padlock. It's the one with the brass keyhole cover and iron body. Smoke house padlocks were manufactured from the 1860s (or sooner) to probably after the turn of the century. Smokehouse padlocks run around $10-50 dollars, depending on the condition and uniqueness. Your smokehouse padlock is fairly plain jane.

The brass padlock with a chain might have been used on a railroad, but it wasn't made for them directly. Good railroad padlocks are embossed with the railroad initials or name. This particular padlock is pretty common and would sell for $20-30 dollars.

The tin padlock with the word EDWARDS on the front is probably from the 1920's or 1930's and was sold in either a dime store or a hardware store. I would value it around $5-35 dollars

All my dad said was that they were common, but I've been hanging around him long enough to pick up a little bit.

If you have any other questions about them or any other antiques, let us know.
