If you have a star antique or a work of art that will command worldwide interest, we will find the right international venue for it. This may be an international auction house, museum or private collector.

If you have many items of moderate value, the whole may be greater than the sum of its parts. In that case, The Appraisal Group may suggest holding an Estate Sale. If that is the case, we will manage, organize, and man the entire event – from cataloging and pricing items to advertising and selling.

In other cases, we may recommend you place the item with a dealer that specializes in a specific genre of antiques or fine art. We will negotiate price and commission on your behalf and help you arrange insurance and shipping
