Good Questions: Appraisers and Auction Houses in DC?

ATDC reader Jayne needs help selling a collection:

ATDC,
I've recently returned to DC after years overseas, and have come to realize that my collections of teak furniture (similar to that pictured above), antique Afghan glass, and Africa art are just way too big for my small DC apartment. I would like to sell some of the pieces I've acquired, but don't know how to assess the value. There are lots of appraisers and auction houses in the area, but I'm hoping for a personal recommendation- I'd like this process to be as painless as possible.
Thanks! Jayne

We recommend talking to S&K Consignments in Bethesda, or to Judith at Capital Consignment as she lived overseas for years. Readers- any other advice for Jayne?
