A word to the wise about some of the local galleries and antique places, dress appropiately. They are in the business of selling items, not buying junk. For those who wish to present a serious piece for apprasail find an authentic dealer. Some only look at the clothes one is wearing before handing the item back or weigh it with thier hand is if they can tell the value. If one gets an offer of $5dollars, run.
