Reasons for Appraisal
There are many reasons why having your items appraised is a good idea. It is always good to know the value of your items to be sure they are handled or maintained properly.
- Insurance - to have documented inventory of your antique or valued items
- Estate Planning - to have documented inventory for tax purposes or to help heirs make educated decisions when liquidating estates
- Fair Market Value - to have knowledge of what your items can expect to realize in today's market, either through auction, retail location or private market
- Authenticity - to have professional exam and give written opinion on specific items and verify or deny authenticity or provide estimated age and origin
Many items can be appraised with online photographs. Stenella Antiques is able to prepare a professional portfolio that will help you determine true value and will be recognized by insurance companies, trusts, etc. Always feel free to contact us with any questions or for more details.
