Historical Museum hosts Antique Appraisal Clinic

Print E-mail
altEustis, FL - Ethel Ryan has been on the phone half the morning, but she knows she has several more calls to make if the event she’s coordinating is going to be a success.

“I usually line up between six and eight appraisers to be available for the fair,” says Ryan, who has been organizing the appraisal clinics for the Eustis Historical Museum for the past several years.  “The diversity of our appraisers and their fields of expertise are the main reason that our clinics are so well-attended and successful.”

The clinic, which will be held on Sunday, March 13th from 1:00 p.m. to 5:00 p.m. at the Eustis Community Center on the corner of Bay and Bates, will feature appraisers with a wide range of expertise, from art, pictures and autographs to jewelry, glassware and Civil War memorabilia.  The clinic is a twice yearly fundraiser for the museum that, according to Museum President Tim Totten, also offers expert appraisals for a fraction of their normal cost.

“If you went to one of these appraisers in their own business, you’d expect to pay forty or fifty dollars for an appraisal,” says Totten.  “But here it’s just a five dollar donation to have an item looked at by an expert.  It’s a win-win for all those involved.”

In addition to the items brought by area residents, Totten will also bring several items from the museum for appraisal.  Totten and the museum curator, Ted Waterfall, hope to have the museum’s 1860’s Regina music box, once owned by the Ferran Family, appraised for insurance valuation.  Waterfall, who has a personal affinity for Civil War and Seminole Indian War era artifacts, is also planning to have several arrowheads from the collection of Dr. Edgar Banks reviewed and appraised by the experts in attendance.

“Our appraisers are so wonderful for volunteering their time to the museum,” says Ryan.  “We just hope visitors show up early enough to get a place in line to have their item appraised.  We always have a great turnout and get to see some beautiful and interesting antiques at these clinics.”

Organizers will open the doors at 1:00 p.m., with plenty of air-conditioned space and seating available for patrons as they wait for an appraisal.  The Eustis Historical Museum & Preservation Society is a non-profit organization that relies upon donations and support from members, citizens and the city Of Eustis to preserve and bring to life the history of Eustis and Lake County.  Donations to the Society are tax-deductible.

For more information, please contact the museum at (352) 483-0046 or Ethel Ryan, coordinator, at (352) 357-5433.
