A Roadshow Evening of Appraisals with John Nye. The Chatham Historical Society will host its major fundraiser on Thursday, April 3. Held at the Morris County Golf Club, the evening will begin at 6:30pm with a reception, including drinks, hors d'oeuvres and a silent auction. Throughout the evening, John Nye, who specializes in the valuation of antiques and fine arts, will be conducting a limited number of appraisals.
John Nye, President of Nye & Company, a regional auction house that appraises and sells quality antiques, heirlooms and collections is also a regular contributor on PBS’s Antiques Roadshow. Proceeds from this exciting event will support the preservation of photos, documents and artifacts to better share with and educate future generations. In addition, the Society hopes to add an additional $1,000 scholarship awarded annually to a graduating Chatham High School senior. Tickets may only be purchased in advance at $100 per person. A limited number of items for appraisal will be offered for an additional fee of $25 per item. Please click here for an invitation.
