“Pawling’s Antique Appraisal Event”





It’s time to see if that treasure you’ve been holding on to is as special as you think. The Historical Society of Quaker Hill and Pawling cordially invites you to “Pawling’s Antique Appraisal Event” on Saturday, August 29, 2015, at the John Kane House, 126 East Main Street, Pawling, NY, from 1 p.m. to 4 p.m.

The event is a fundraiser to help raise the monies to give this wonderful house, which served as George Washington’s Headquarters in 1778, a badly needed paint job.

Our Appraisers for the day are Ken Kolski (American Art & pottery, glassware, Mid Century Collectibles); Jane Lynn (porcelain, silver, decorative furnishings); Stephen Hughes (Estate jewelry, diamonds, pocket watches, paintings, bronzes); Linda Kelly Fauci (porcelain, silver, decorative furnishings); and Fitch Lockwood (clocks and clock repair). All of our Appraisers have varied and diverse backgrounds in multiple areas and look forward to viewing any and all items you would like appraised. For large items, we encourage you to bring photographs taken from different views/angles. The tickets are $10 for each appraised item (up to 5 items per session in line), and you can register again to have additional items appraised if you like. Plus, there’s a Special Offer: Get 3 items appraised for $25. Please note: the event is set up for Verbal Appraisals only. Any buying and selling can be done privately. Your appraisal fee(s) also includes a complimentary tour of the John Kane House and access to the Gift Shop. Light refreshments will be available for purchase as well. You’ll also have an opportunity to purchase the group’s new “50-50 Raffle Tickets”, with drawings to begin in September.

Reservations are encouraged, but any and all “Walk-Ins” are welcome.
