Appraisals and Estimates

Japanese Bronze Doe 001

Lippy’s Furniture & Antiques will value items for customers on the payment of a fee and we have confidence that our experience in buying and selling will provide a good estimation of value.

Customers need to understand that all care will be taken to provide a good valuation. However, antique markets rise and fall similar to the stock market and many other markets so a valuation provided in good faith will not remain that price indefinitely.

A typical valuation will require a $50 fee to be paid. However, if extensive research is required to establish the providence (on a valuable item) for example, this would be undertaken either on an hourly basis or by negotiation.
