(Larchmont, NY February 15, 2011) – Two years ago, the Larchmont Historical Society held their own version of  the “Antiques Roadshow” with “Antiques Appraisal Day”.   The event proved to be a wonderful success, with more than 80 enthusiastic participants  attending,  eager to learn the value of their treasured art, jewelry, furniture and decorative objects from a panel of expert appraisers.  This year, the LHS is partnering with Clarke Auction Gallery to once again offer guests the chance to assess the history and value of their antiques.

The event will have two parts.  The first, “What’s Hot? What’s Not” will be held on Friday evening, March 4th, from 6-8PM at the Larchmont Yacht Club.   It will feature  an open forum panel discussion with seasoned experts, exploring the state of the antiques market today,  and answering questions about their given expertise, as well as inquiries about antiques in general.   The panel will be moderated by Tom Curran of Clarke Auction Gallery.   Cocktails will be served.  The event is $20 for LHS members, $25 for non-members.

Part two, Antiques Appraisal Day, takes place  Saturday, March 5th, at Clarke  Auction Gallery, from 12-4PM.  Certified dealers and appraisers will be on hand in the fields of Asian Art and Antiquities, European and International Fine Art, Jewelry, Silver, Traditional American Antiques, Paintings and Sculpture, and the Decorative Arts.   A fee of $20 will be charged for the first appraised item, $10.00 will be charged for each additional item, with a maximum of three objects being appraised per person.

Light refreshments will be served.
