      Mr. Torres:
      Thank you for thinking of ITC to help identify your items. The museum is happy to help with any object identifications we can but, can not provide any appraisal information.
      If you can email me some photos of the item to ITC.Curator@utsa.edu along with a description of any labels you may find on it and some rough dimensions of the item we will do our best to research the object and share our findings with you.
      Thanks again,
      Kate McCloud
