Antique Appraisal Days

Antique Appraisal Days are benefits to raise awareness and funds for charitable and nonprofit groups. These are some of the organizations we have worked with over the years.



Astor Galleries has been holding antique appraisal benefits throughout the NYC tri-state area in order to educate the general public as to the true value of their items. We do so because many of our customers have had negative experiences trying to evaluate and/or sell items via an estate, tag or yard sale.

As many people do not have access to a quick and affordable appraisal, the Antique Appraisal Day is a welcome event in their community. These events benefit local organizations and are Astor Galleries’ way of giving back to the community.

Mr. Cardile has been appraising fine jewelry, art, antiques and collectibles for over 40 years.

Astor Galleries brings a team of recognized expert appraisers including Stephen Cardile (long time appraiser), Mara Dean (fine art appraiser), and Alex Salazar (fine art consultant) and appraise all types of Antiques, Collectibles and Vintage Items.

No appointments are made or necessary at these events (sorry we cannot take reservations).  Items are appraised for just $10 each, or $25 for three items, with a limit of six items.

By popular demand qualified consignments will be accepted plus gold, silver, and coins will be purchased.
