Antique Appraisal event to be held Sunday

An Antiques Appraisal event will be held at the Marlboro County Historical Museum on Sunday.  The "Antiques Roadshow" type event will be from 2-5:30 p.m.
Lynn McQueen, museum and cultural affairs director at the Marlboro County Museums, said Charlie Maurer and John Turner of Quality First Antiques on Broad Street in Bennettsville will do the appraisals.
Maurer and Turner have years of experience buying, selling and appraising antiques.
The cost is $5 for up to five items. Each item will be assigned a number and appraisals will occur in the order of arrival.
McQueen said all proceeds will go to the Historical Society to support the museum.
Items accepted include furniture, porcelain, glass, pottery, quilts and more. They will not be able to appraise firearms.
If someone is bringing an item, they must be able to carry the item in themselves.
"We will not have people here to carry in big pieces of furniture," she said.
But if someone has a piece of furniture or an item they cannot bring, they can take photos of it.
Mauer and Turner can use the photos to give an appraisal.
She added if someone has a question about what type of photos are needed, they can call her.
McQueen said an appraisal event was held last fall and went very well.
"We had a good response and a lot of people expressed an interest in us doing it again," she said.
For more information, call the Marlboro County Historical Museum at 843-479-5624 or email lmcqueen@marlborocounty.sc.gov.
