An appraiser with A Conscience.
IT’S YOU WE VALUE MOST!
This is our company slogan, our company creed. We don’t just value art and antiques, for they are inanimate objects without feelings. We prepare documents of authenticity and value for our clients. We must help them find ways to best use them. Through these documents they come to value their collections more or use them to change the value of their lives. We are not just number providers, but a company with deep feelings on a mission to help you. For “it’s you we value most.”
Confused about exactly what you have? Painting, print, antique reproduction, masterpiece or a garage sale item.
Just send us a photo of it in the mail (no e-mail please). We'll write and tell you if it warrants researching, plus our fee. There is no obligation or charge for this initial examination.
