Please understand a couple of points about
evaluating medical antiques: No one can be an expert in all fields of
medical antiques and we are only able to help you with items like you see on
We are not dealers. Dealers buy from
you, double the price, and re-sell to collectors. We are collectors, and one
motivation for maintaining this site is to find items that fit in our collections
BEFORE they go through dealers.
While we are not certified appraisers, we have seen,
studied, and purchased enough medical antiques to courteously help you with identification and values. We are
happy to share our knowledge! We also may be able to put you in contact with
other collectors who may be interested in your antique and most likely pay
much more than a dealer.
We want to continue to learn about this exciting
field and would like to hear about your items whether they are for sale or not.
If you have items similar to those on
this Web-site, please get in touch with us and we'll try to help you identify
and price your antique. If you can provide digital photos via e-mail,
that is a great help in quickly responding to your needs. If you need to
mail print photos, the mailing address is on the contact
