It is appropriate that the historical society of Windsor, Connecticut’s first settlement, is offering an antiques appraisal afternoon to help jumpstart our fall season. And our town is rich in experts to advise! On Sunday, September 22th from 1-4 p.m., several of them will be on hand at Windsor Historical Society to look at your family treasures and tell you more about them: their age, condition and value, and how best to care for them. Perhaps your family has carefully preserved a great-grandmother’s wedding dress. Or maybe there’s an upholstered gilt chair that, according to family tradition, was smuggled out of France during the French Revolution. Or perhaps you purchased an oil-painted landscape from an antiques dealer years ago for a song and can’t quite make out the artist’s signature. You want to find out what’s involved in cleaning and conservation of the painting and whether its value warrants the cost of conservation.

Heather Nadeau of Nadeau’s Appraisals will be on hand as will James Selig and Sharran Selig Bennett of James Selig Estate Jewelry and Antiques. They will provide expertise on fine and decorative arts, furniture, jewelry, couture, Orientalia, and books and manuscripts. So if you’ve ever been curious about family heirlooms such as furniture, glass, ceramics, metal goods, toys, clothing and textiles, and jewelry, here is your chance to find out more. Your cost is $5 per item and you are limited to 5 items to be appraised. Depending on foot traffic, you may have to wait a little, but the Society’s 400 Years of Windsor Stories exhibition will be open for viewing and it is often enjoyable as well as educational to listen to what experts say about artifacts others bring in. Parking is available around Palisado Green and in the Windsor Discovery Center and First Church parking lots.
