If you’re ever wondered about that old family heirloom, bring it to the very first Winslow Antiques Appraisal Fair! Hosted by the Old Trails Museum and Friends of Winslow Public Library, the fair will take place on Saturday, June 18, from 10 am to 4 pm at the Winslow Visitors Center/Hubbell Trading Post, 523 West Second Street.
Sean Morton of Morton Appraisals in Scottsdale is bringing his expertise to Winslow so that residents will have the opportunity to have their historic items identified and appraised. Mr. Morton will offer verbal appraisals (not in writing) of objects including, but not limited to, fine art paintings, prints, sculpture, porcelain, crystal, silver, clocks, antique jewelry, Asian art, and Native American arts and crafts. (No guns, coins, or stamps will be appraised.)
To schedule your one-on-one appointment with Mr. Morton, call the Old Trails Museum at 928-289-5861 by Thursday, June 16. Attendance is limited to forty people, and each person is limited to two items for appraisal. The charge for the first item is $15 and for the second item is $5 (an excellent value versus the cost of a private appraisal).
Mr. Morton is a certified, licensed, and insured appraiser, as well as a member of the Antique Appraisal Association of America. He provides fair market and insurance appraisals for estates and individuals. He also works as an independent national auction representative, helping clients consign to nationally-recognized auction houses. Morton regularly appears on Channel Eight’s Arizona Collectibles, which airs on Thursday nights at 7:30 pm.
The Winslow Antiques Appraisal Fair is a partnership program between the Old Trails Museum and the Friends of Winslow Public Library. The fair is presented as a service to the community; the event is not a fundraiser and the charge is only to cover our costs.
