Antique Appraisal Clinic Coming October 4th

The Museum Guild of Dearborn is once again sponsoring its Annual Antique Appraisal Clinic on Saturday, October 4th at the McFadden-Ross House at 915 Brady Street from 10 a.m. until 4 p.m. Expert Appraisers Sue Lynch and a team from Du Mouchelle Art Galleries will be on hand to appraise up to 5 of your treasures – no musical instruments, furniture, or weapons please. The charge is $10 per item and you can register and pay online starting from this page. If you do not register here, you will still be able to walk in and take the next available time slot, but please do so no later than 3:30. All proceeds will be used to support the Dearborn Historical Museum.

Reserve your spot now by clicking here or clicking on Antique Appraisal Clinic on the menu to the left.

  1. Does the team of appraisers have expertise in any specific categories, such as jewelry, art or Civil War metals? It would help guide us on what we could bring.

    1. Hi JSD,

      Thank you for your questions. It is my understanding that Du Mouchelles will have at least two appraisers on hand with the expertise to handle anything but the items listed. This event serves a few purposes. It makes it convenient for folks who don’t want to drive down to East Jefferson. It is an inexpensive way for people to see what they might have in terms of their treasures. And it is a fundraiser for us at the Dearborn Historical Museum. Thank you for your support of local history.

      Best Wishes,

  2. I was going to ask the same question as JSD. The article told the few items “not” to bring (which is helpful), but I don’t want to pre-pay $50 for useless appraisals because they are guessing. I understand not being able to list “everything”, but some of the obvious “specialty” items would be helpful. Jewelry, Dolls, Quilts, Electronics (cameras, recording, medical, etc.) just to name a few. It would be nice if Du Mouchelle’s offered a pdf download of items to and not to bring. Even if it is constantly changing, it’s better than nothing.
