When submitting an online request, be sure to include:
Clear photographs. Smart phone photos work perfectly. Include identifying marks, details and damage. Try to photograph your property in an uncluttered setting.
Include information about the object’s provenance and authenticity: artist or maker, medium or material, object dimensions, identifying marks, country of origin and number of items in a set. Purchase receipts, previous written appraisals or other information about how you acquired the object can be very helpful in determining an accurate auction estimate.
The better your information, the more accurate our estimate!
