The Stafford branch hosted a program called “Antiques! Free Appraisal!” on May 29. The program featured representatives of Victorian Vanities, Philadelphia who shared their insight into the value and history of selected items.

Thirty-six people brought in 27 items. Appraiser John Thompson discussed each item as his assistant showed them to the audience.

Items included a Roseville pottery vase of an exceptional blue color; a dinner plate from the Lusitania, sunk in 1915; part of the Hindenburg, 1937; and a receipt made out to Louis XIV for building material for Versailles, dated around 1700.

The program was very well-received and many attendees asked if the library could host it again.

Attendees had the opportunity to view the items others brought in for appraisal.
