TRENTON, N.J. – Mayor Tony F. Mack has announced that the Trenton Museum Society and the Trenton City Museum at Ellarslie Mansion in Cadwalader Park will host an antique appraisal day on Sunday Feb. 27. The public is invited to bring one or two antiques or collectibles for an expert to appraise between the hours of 1 and 4 p.m. at the museum, for a fee of $10 each (maximum two items).
This popular annual event benefits the Trenton Museum Society, a nonprofit organization dedicated to promoting Trenton’s art and preserving its history. Proceeds will be used to fund ongoing exhibit openings, music series events and educational programs.
The panel of experts will include: Robert Cunningham, Chris Casarona, Carol Cruickshanks, and Eugene Pascucci. Each participant has many years of experience and expert knowledge of the antique and collectibles market.
Items to be appraised must be small enough to be easily brought into the museum by the owner. Firearms are excluded from valuation and may not be brought on the premises. Estimates of monetary value are for the owner’s information only and not intended for any other use.
