Toledo Museum of Art 419.254.5770
As always, the local public is invited to conduct their own research in the Toledo Museum of Art Library. The Library has numerous resources on valuation, identifying art and antiques, as well as current art auction prices and sales catalogs.

Please visit the Museum’s homepage at
http://www.toledomuseum.org/ and click on Learn at TMA to go to the Reference Library.

As a matter of policy, the Museum does not appraise objects for the public. The Museum’s library will try to help you with historical information on your item, including biographical information on the artist when you visit the library.
