Appraiser Peter Blundell

Touchstones Nelson hosting antiques appraisal clinic

On October 18 and 19, Touchstones Nelson will be hosting an art and antiques appraisal clinic with Peter Blundell.

On October 18 and 19, Touchstones Nelson will be hosting an art and antiques appraisal clinic with Peter Blundell, a long time former Ontario antiques dealer, who for the past 22 years has resided in Vernon. Today he is a fully accredited independent art and antiques appraiser, consultant and lecturer.

Blundell will give verbal opinions of market value on art works, antiques and collectibles (appraisals cannot be provided for jewellery, coins, stamps, guns, and wristwatches).

Individuals who wish to have large furniture pieces assessed are asked to bring in a portion of the piece, e.g., a drawer, along with a photograph, and the item’s measurements. Please note that items thought to be over 400 years old cannot usually be assessed during this format.

Blundell will assess those unknown treasures you have tucked away — that beautiful bowl that Granny loved, your unused sterling and silver-plated tea sets, that picture on the wall from Auntie Liz, the lovely and pleasing Royal Doulton figurine, the dining table beautifully restored or not — they all have value.

Tickets are $35 for Touchstones members and $45 for the general public. They’re on sale now at Touchstones Nelson. For further information please call 250-352-9813. Tickets guarantee an appointment of 15 minutes for up to three items. Come, watch and listen. Spectator tickets are also available for $5.
