Our Annual Fundraiser!
The Mt. Kearsarge Indian Museum will be hosting their Annual Fundraiser with Antiques Appraisal Events on Friday, November 3 and Saturday, November 4, 2017.
On Friday, November 3rd, participants will enjoy a Skinner Auctioneers and Appraisers event called “What’s It Worth?” This event is both entertaining and educational for those interested in the history and the value of antiques. You may bring 3 treasures to the museum for evaluation and verbal appraisal! The evening starts with fine wine and a selection of hors d’oeuvres reception from 5:00 p.m. to 6:00 p.m. Guests will be able to walk through the museum with tour guides and meet with Skinner Native American appraiser and Board Trustee Doug Deihl who will discuss various collections pieces from the museum. From 6:00 to 7:30 p.m., attendees will gather in the museum’s contemporary art gallery to enjoy a presentation by the appraisers. This program will provide information on the objects that guests have brought to the event along with an estimated value based on current market prices for a similar example. The Friday event is by invitation only. Please contact the museum at 603-456-2600 if you would like to be included on our mailing list for this once in a lifetime experience, please give us a call!
If you have large or particularly fragile antique items, Skinner recommends that good quality photos be substituted. If you have services of china or silver, please bring one example of each piece in a set accompanied by a list of the total number of pieces instead of the entire set. Items that are not included at this event are: weapons, coins, stamps, and large furniture.
