Walpole Historical Society Antique Appraisal Event

October 5, 2018 from 4:30 to 6 pm

Walpole Heritage Museum

32 Main Street, Walpole, NH

The Walpole Historical Society is offering an Antique Appraisal Event, which will take place at the Walpole Heritage Museum at 32 Main Street in the village of Walpole on Friday, October 5, from 4:30 to 6 pm.  Four appraisers will make verbal appraisals for $5.00 per item.  There is no limit to the number of items attendees may present.  A raffle of donations of historic or local interest, as well as refreshments, will add to the pleasures of the evening, which is open to all who wish to attend.

The appraisers, who bring a wide variety of specialized knowledge and experience to their work, have been gathered together for this event by Jason Hackler of New Hampshire Antique Co-op in Milford, NH.  New Hampshire Antique Co-op, a family-run business now in its 35th year, has made a practice over the years of supporting the fundraising efforts of New Hampshire historical societies by participating in appraisal events.  The funds which the Walpole Historical Society raises will be dedicated to the preservation and display of artifacts in the Society’s collection.

Jason Hackler and Sam Hackler specialize in fine art; American and English eighteenth and nineteenth century furniture, porcelain and silver; as well as jewelry.  Watch expert David Searles deals in and restores antique jewelry, jade, clocks, and pocket and wrist watches.  Richard Thorner, owner of Resser-ThornerAntiques in Manchester, NH, specializes in historical paper ephemera, books, and documents.

Along with this event we will have a great Raffle too. A great variety of items to choose from!  So come spend the evening with us at the Museum- enjoy refreshments and browse both inside and outside too.  Bring the family.

See you at the Museum Friday, October 5th 4:30pm – 6:00pm.
