Art Appraisals

Fine Art & Antique Appraiser

Have you wondered what your artwork, modern sculpture, or antique furniture is worth? Maybe you've just inherited a large collection of china, silver, glass or pottery and want to know its current value.

ART DIRECTIVES can assist you in ascertaing the value of one item, a hundred items or more! Knowing the value of your items can assist with proper insurance coverage and also if you are selling the items.

Fine Art and Antique Appraisals

More and more, as individuals acquire items of value, it is important to have an up-to-date accounting of these items for insurance or sales purposes. Additionally, perhaps you have an older family member who is getting ready to scale down their residence and needs help in determining the value of a lifetime's worth of heirlooms. You may wish to have these items carefully documented and cataloged by an unbiased, certified appraiser.

You and your family may possess an item of great wealth and not be aware of it. You may be richer than you think. Feel free to contact us should you have any questions about individual art appraisals.

Replacement Value for Insurance

Replacement value for insurance is defined as the highest price in terms of cash or other precisely revealed terms that would be required to replace property with another of similar age, quality, origin, appearance, provenance, and condition, within a reasonable length of time in an appropriate market. Since items involved in an appraisal are either one of a kind or were produced in a very limited quantity, this definition assumes that an item cannot be replaced with an exact duplicate. Therefore, additional consideration must be made for the replacement as to artistic merit, desirability, characteristics, and period of execution.
