Gifts + Judaica
Value My (Jewish) Stuff
You never know what treasures you have lying around your home, but Value My Stuff could tell you. The online service, which offers appraisals, auction services, restorer recommendations and more, guarantees a low-cost, 48-hour valuation report.
“It’s the same convenience as buying clothing online,” said Megan Mul—rooney, vice president at Value My Stuff. “It’s about realizing the unknown worth of your property.”
Value My Stuff (www.valuemystuff.com) has countless stories of highly valued items appraised by owners clueless to their worth, from an over-$10,000 found menora to a Monet that was propped up against a fish tank in the appraisal photos. In addition to Judaica, the service appraises everything from Greek and Roman antiquities to paintings and instruments.
The Judaica category was launched in 2014, fueled by insurance appraisals and inheritors looking to sell objects received from parents and grandparents. Value My Stuff’s Judaica appraiser also consults for Bonhams auction house and managed their first Judaica auction in New York in December 2013.
“Discoveries in this category are still possible,” Mulrooney said. Collectible Judaica items worth appraising range from silver ceremonial objects to decorative art and traditional home items like halla covers, Seder plates and kosher signage.
Hi, I have a painting that I’m sure is of some value and looks to be quite old its an oil painting of a jewish man reading what I believe to be a Torah I would like to have it appraised.
Did you ever have your appraisal done?
