Purchasing items from antique auctions for your collection can be a great way of getting nice pieces for a good price. Unfortunately, you do have to be cautious. Some auctions include pieces that are not authentic antiques. That’s why it’s always important to work with auction experts and appraisers to ensure that you’re getting what you pay for.
We’re one of the top appraisal companies in the antiques business. Whether you’re buying antique furniture, fine arts, or estate jewelry, you can count on us to provide you with all of the information you need to determine if a piece is right for you.
Today our auction firm conducts on the average of 45 auctions per year. We understand how auctions work and where they get the pieces they sell. In fact, we’ve been called on to assist in appraising pieces in antique jewelry auctions and other antique sales due to our professional experience and knowledge in the area.
Even when an auction house doesn’t bring us it to inspect the pieces before they go to the block, you can. We will assist you at antique auctions in NY, plus we can even evaluate the items listed in an antique auction online. It’s your right to know what you’re bidding on, so don’t hesitate to have us take a look at the pieces you’re interested in.
Thanks to the Internet, more and more collectors are turning to online auctions in order to get their pieces in front of more people. Before you take your listings to one of the many estate jewelry auctions online, you can bring them to us for an appraisal.
This does a number of things for you. You can show those bidding on your jewelry auctions online that the pieces are backed by a professional appraisal. You’ll also have an idea of what the final purchase price should be so you can set a reasonable opening bid price.
