The Henry Ford does not offer an appraisal service, but there are two organizations that can direct you to a reputable antique dealer in your area. The American Society of Appraisers offers that service and can assist with telling you more about your object. You can call them at 1-800-272-8258 or email them at They will ask you to identify your area of interest (dishes, silver, furniture, etc.) and your location (city, state, area code, zip code, etc.). The other organization is the Appraisers Association of America. You can call them at 212-889-5494 or email them at or
