I lost 90+ year old antiques in a catastrophic house fire (total loss). Can Kovels and the Kovels community help me determine the values of the items? Of particular interest are furniture, glassware and dishware items. Please comment. I can use all the help that I can get. Thank you.
Talk to your insurance agent to see what kind of proof of value they require. Make a list of the items lost, including description, when the item was purchased, and the price you paid. If the items were inherited, include as much of the history as you can. Check online sites or antiques stores to see what similar things are selling for.
