An Evening of Antique Appraisals


BRIDGEWATER ---- Henry Callan, a well know appraiser and antiques dealer, will be the guest speaker at the Bridgewater Public Library on Tuesday, November 29th at 7:00 PM.  

The program will be An Evening of Antiques Appraisals.  All kinds of antiques will be appraised with the exception of stamps, coins and jewelry.  If an object is not easily transportable, a good quality photo may be used instead.  Attendees are asked to limit their items to two, in order that everybody may have a chance to participate.
