Kingswinford glass museum to host valuation day
Updated 5:59pm Tuesday 8th July 2014 in Local
A KINGSWINFORD glass museum is hosting another valuation day where people can find out how much their antiques, family heirlooms and collectables are worth.
Broadfield House Glass Museum in Compton Drive is holding the event on Monday July 14 to celebrate Black Country Day.
Experts from Fielding’s Auctioneers in Stourbridge will be attending the event including Will Farmer who regularly appears on the BBC’s Antiques Roadshow, Mark Hannam - formerly of Bonhams, and Alison Snowdon.
There is a £1 charge per valuation and all proceeds will go to the Friends of Broadfield House Glass Museum which supports the work of the museum and which is celebrating its 20th anniversary this year.
Councillor Hilary Bills, Dudley’s cabinet member for environment and culture, said: “We are delighted that Fieldings Auctioneers are attending this event as part of the Black Country celebrations. They are experts in ceramics, textiles, paintings and collectables, not just glass, so we’re looking forward to seeing a fantastic range of items for valuation.
“All of the proceeds will be donated to The Friends of Broadfield House and we are very grateful for the support they have given the glass museum over the last 20 years.”
For the valuation day, the museum will be open from 10am to 4pm with the last entry at 3pm. Admission is free.
