Thank you for your question, Renee.
At Historic New England, we value our collections based on their family history of use and the stories that they can tell about domestic life in New England.
If you are looking for an appraisal value for a similar object, I would recommend contacting an auction house or antiques dealer in your area. They will have the best idea of a market value.
Again, thank you for your question.
Sincerely,
Nicole Chalfant
