Auctioneers and appraisers

An appraiser (from Latin appretiare, to value), is one who sets a value upon property, real or personal. In England the business of an appraiser is usually combined with that of an auctioneer, while the word itself has a similar meaning to that of "valuer."


They also seemed to have another trade, the majority being cabinet makers & upholsterers.
