If I showed you five different antiques, could you pinpoint which one is most valuable?
I'm going to show you five antiques that I spotted while touring the property and you can tell me which is the most valuable in the comments.
First let me set the stage. Here is the historic Evans Estate,
and the groundskeeper invited me inside...
So here's where the game begins...
Is that the tiger woods of oak dressers ? or is it a bureau? a serving table? a dish pantry? I'm asking.. I really don't know.. I love the carved claw feet. No I don't know what it's worth either...
I didn't think to open any of the drawers and look inside so this is all you get...
somebody tell me what it is properly called so I can write it here
This is a piece of art from a famous Canadian artist (I think) that is being proffered for sale in the silent auction as part of the March of Dimes, Hope with Art program which provides the pubic an opportunity to purchase beautiful framed artworks at reasonable prices. Most importantly, profits from the sale go to March of Dimes Canada and help support the programs and services provided to children and adults with disabilities.
Here is the reproduction Monet that was discussed in the beginning of this post,
yes I know its only a reproduction art piece and as such its worthless as art right? But I reckon it could still be valuable as decor. And this appraiser quiz game should have some surprises - some curve balls...
before you get too excited... let's turn it over and look at the bottom.
Okay so now you have seen all five items - I swear these are the most interesting objects i\on the estate at present which has been renovated many times, most notably in the 1970's . Now what are your bets? Which of these five objects would you pin point as being the very best and most valuable collectible .. and why?
