Thomaston Antique Appraiser Beginning To Wish Grandma’s Antique Chamber Pot Had Been Rinsed Out A Little Better

Grandma's chamber pot

Grandma's chamber potFine art, valuable paintings, rare glass and intricate silverwork, even a restored Jeep –  they have all made their way to Thomaston Place Auction Galleries appraisal events. Some owners are pleasantly surprised by the value of the item they bring in. Others are disappointed; but everybody who brings something to the event leaves with a better understanding of the background of a prized possession. “We take our time and make sure people understand the culture, the origins of the piece and where it was made,” said John Bottero, Vice President of Thomaston Place. “We try to talk about the aspects that make it saleable and build the story of the piece.” Thomaston Place Auction Galleries will be at St. Andrews Village June 19 from 11 a.m. until 3 p.m. for an Antiques Appraisal Fair. Kaja Veilleux, President of Thomaston Place, will provide instant onsite appraisals in the Pinkham Dining Room at St. Andrews Village. (read more at Wiscasset Newspaper)
