First National Financial Services and First National Bank will host an antique appraisal event, Thursday, April 27, from 5:30 to 7:30 p.m. at the Hancock Historical Museum, 422 W. Sandusky St., Findlay.
The event will feature appraiser Richard E. Stegman who has more than 30 years of experience with antiques, including owner of several antique shops, and was a student of Harry Rinker’s The Institute for the Study of Antiques and Collectibles.
Guests attending the event will be permitted to bring one small item per person. Small items include, but are not limited to porcelains, glass, estate jewelry, paintings, toys and advertising items.
Stegman will provide history for each item and his professional opinion of the approximate value of the item for all of the guests. “We know that folks today want trusted people to provide information on various topics from Social Security to long-term care planning to antiques.
"Our antique appraisal event is a fun way to bring people together to learn about items that embody the rich history of our area and our guests may find their items are worth something too,” says Todd Mason, president of First National Bank.
The workshop is free, open to the public and includes light appetizers. Space is limited so those interested in attending should RSVP by calling or visiting any First National Bank branch in Bluffton, Findlay, Ottawa or Pandora or by using the Contact Us feature at www.e-FNB.com.
