I am SO glad that Appraisley came to look at what I had before an estate sale.  Turns out I had an original Tiffany & Co. vase that was really valuable!”

How does appraising work?

Gathering accurate information for an art appraiser is crucial.  This can involve using special lighting, magnification, accurate measurements, etc.  Looking at the back, bottom, or inside of an item can often reveal hidden clues. Information on the provenance (where it came from) is sometimes important in putting a value on an item, but not always.

An appraiser develops an “opinion of value” based many things, including research and experience.  The results are in no way contingent upon the fees.  Click here for more information.

 

Some of the items we’ve recently appraised…

In-person appraisals

An in-person summary appraisal can be used either for Insurance, Estates, Divorce, IRS Donation, Liquidation, etc.  As with any good art appraiser, our fees are not connected with outcome, but are based on our hourly rate, which is $95.00. The final cost of an art or personal-property appraisal can range depending on the hours of research required.

 

Online appraisals

Sometimes people ask “is my art worth appraising?”  An online appraisal can be a great, cost effective way to start for SOME items.  These appraisals are typically “restricted” and can only be used by the client (not for insurance, IRS, etc.).  For a prepaid fee of $39.00 we will review uploaded photos of your item and give you a certified appraisal.  If it’s determined a more comprehensive in-person appraisal is needed, the cost of the online art and personal property appraisal will be applied.
