Appraisal Fees

While we prefer to inspect every item, we will appraise works of art from photographs and transparencies. In many cases, inspecting the actual art work may be cost prohibitive. Therefore, when items are not inspected personally, no guarantee is made to the actual condition or possible previous restoration of the work which may reflect the value. Consequently, unless stated otherwise, the work of art will be appraised in pristine condition at the time of appraisal when the work is not inspected personally.

Our fees differ depending on research time spent in documenting the work and other costs that may be involved. We will negotiate a fee on a per diem basis or, as to a specific undertaking, such as appraising a complete collection. A retainer agreement is necessary within these areas.

Appraisal Valuation Fees: Appraisal fees are charged at an hourly rate in accordance with the time required to do the research and to write the appraisal. Fees can also be charged on a per diem basis, or on a negotiated agreed price, such as for a collection of art.
