Meet them in person so that you can see the item in person before the purchase. This will allow you to check the validity of their claim on a high dollar item.
If you believe that you have a antique butter dish and would like to get appraised then try to contact a antique dealer locally so that you can try to gather as much information on it as you can. Also, get more than one bid or quote on the item as you do not want to get low-balled into selling a item that might be worth significantly more. If you are interested in selling it and after getting it appraised then check with the dealer to see if they would be willing to let you place the item on consignment so that you can get the best price.
