    Appraisal Transcript:
    GUEST: I brought some vases that my husband gave me for Christmas two years ago.

    APPRAISER: Do you know what they are?

    GUEST: Fairly old, from, I think, the 1930s, and that's about it.

    APPRAISER: They're French art glass, and they were made by Auguste Legras, and they're signed Legras. Probably made a little bit earlier than what you think, probably about 1900 to 1910.

    GUEST: Oh, wow.

    APPRAISER: At auction, they would sell between $500 and $800.

    GUEST: Really?

    APPRAISER: Yeah.

    GUEST: Wow.

    APPRAISER: Absolutely.

    GUEST: Cool.

    APPRAISER: They're great pieces.
