RESEARCH AND AUTHENTICATION
As anyone who has watched The Antiques Road Show can attest, things are not always what they seem. This is why knowing exactly what you have is so important, since it can mean a tremendous difference in value. To this end, we offer research and authentication services to help our clients learn exactly what they have and what it might be worth in today's markets.
Depending on the item, it may be necessary to turn to nationally or internationally recognized experts for authentication. In most cases, we can either handle that for our clients or simply provide suggestions as to how to go about it. Most major auction houses today insist on the authentication of significant works before they will sell them, so getting this dealt with beforehand can be a prudent move.
