Online appraisals are for informational purposes only and cannot be used for insurance. They are meant to give you an idea of an items worth. You will receive an email with my professional opinion of value and any extra tidbits of information when available. Unlike other online appraisals that only give you a form with an amount on it, my appraisals include a professional item description, before & after restoration values, and approximate age with historic information when available.
While I do specialize in furniture, I am certified to appraise all antiques. In the unlikely event that I cannot determine a value from photographs and information provided by you, I will give a full refund.
Appraisals by Mail - $15 each
Instructions on the right.
Furniture sets are considered one appraisal unless you want values for each piece individually. If so, it's $15 each piece.
