So you’ve stumbled across a dusty heirloom stowed away in your attic? Maybe you’re redecorating and can’t find room for your bronze bust collection. Or perhaps your grandfather left you with his fine collection of wine, though you’re much more of a beer drinker.
If you’d prefer to bring your item to an auction house’s gallery, don’t just drop by. Call first to make an appointment, to be sure the right specialist will be on hand to view your property. Bring all supporting documentation with you and tell the appraiser all you know about an an object — how long it has been in your family, where it came from, when it was purchased, who owned it, and how it came into your possession.
If you’re a collector of art and antiques or the heir to a family estate, no doubt you’ve thought about consigning some of that property to auction. So what might be stopping you? I’ve been an appraiser for over thirty years, and I’ve helped thousands of clients successfully auction their fine tangibles.
