TRENTON, N.J. – The Trenton City Museum is inviting the public to attend an antiques appraisal day on Sunday, Feb. 19, at the Ellarslie Mansion in Cadwalader Park. The event will take place from 1 till 4 p.m.

Attendees may bring up to two items for expert apprasial and discussion.

“Bring items with a personal story, or artifacts that illuminate details of life in the past,” a museum-issued release stated. “Many items will have monetary value while most will be simply irreplaceable to you.”

There is a nominal $10 fee for each item appraised. All funds generated by the event will be used to fund ongoing exhibits and educational programs.

The panel of antique experts who will be providing appraisals includes Eugene Pascucci (A-A Empire Antiques, Hightstown, N.J.), Robert Cunningham; and Thomas and Donna Rago (American & European Antiques, Tomato Factory, Hopewell, N.J). This group of antique dealers and collectors represents many years of experience and knowledge.

American antiques and items from Trenton are of particular interest, but members of this panel are equally passionate about all antique genres and will be happy to share their insights. Antiques from every category are welcome with the exception of firearms, which are not permitted on the premises.

For additional information call 609-989-3632 or visit www.ellarslie.org.
