Clars to Appraise Antiques with Alameda Museum


Clars Auction Gallery is coming to the Alameda Museum. For more than 45 years, Clars has built a strong reputation for knowledge and experience in handling quality estate property and has sold more than $175 million worth of fine art, furnishings, jewelry, vehicles and collectibles.

Now Alamedans have a chance to get verbal auction estimates from Clars for their valuables. The Alameda Museum invites the community to bring items to Eagles Hall, 2305 Alameda Ave., Wednesday evening, March 28. Examples of items to bring include Native American, Western and Ethnographic pieces, fine jewelry and timepieces, as well as collectibles like coins, figurines and rare books.

Alameda residents are also welcome to bring paintings, vases, silver and photos of large furniture. Don’t forget rare, interesting or unique pieces. Suggestions include a ring that has been in the family for years, or a letter signed by a historical figure.

The evening will begin at the museum across the street from Eagles Hall at 5:30 p.m. Professionals from Clars will discuss and evaluate several items in the museum. Then those professionals will offer auction estimates to anyone who brings their items to Eagles Hall. The evening winds up at 8 p.m.

The museum would like to get an idea as to how many people would like to bring items and what sort of items they would like to bring. The museum asks that individuals bring no more than three items each.

Contact museum president Dennis Evanosky by phone or text at 772-5209 or email no later than 5 p.m., Monday, March 26.
