Several times a year, the St. Louis County Heritage & Arts Center in Duluth puts on a free antique appraisal event that is open to the public.

This gives you the opportunity to bring in your treasures or suspected treasures, to see what kind of monetary value they may hold.  The St. Louis County Historical Society brings in one or several expert antique appraisers, and you may bring in two items per person.  If your items are too large or fragile to be carried in, you may bring clear photographs with a description of any marks and labels to aid in identification.

The August 2019 date is the 21st, from noon-3:00PM, and you need to be there by 2:30PM to register in person.  The St. Louis County Heritage & Arts Center is located at 506 West Michigan Street in Duluth, MN.  This event can get busy so it's advised to arrive as early as possible.
