Fine Art Consultation by Morgan CawdreyRegular price $69.00
Initial Art Consultation for Fine Art Appraisals
What is an art consultation?
Our art professional will spend at least a half hour researching your artwork(s) through professional sources, find as many appropriate comparables as possible and determine an estimated value range from this data. He will share this and any other interesting information he learns with you via email. This will not be a legal document like a formal appraisal, however.
What is an art appraisal?
Is it worth being appraised?
We will let you know! Our initial consultation will help the client determine whether it is worth going through the appraisals process. Appraisers bill by the hour, with a single item taking a minimum of 4 hours and additional items typically taking .5-1 hour each. It may also depend on the type of appraisal needed.
What does the appraisal include?
A completed, formatted PDF with a catalog of descriptions, estimated values, images, comparables, and language compliant with the 2022-2023 Uniform Standards of Professional Appraisal (USPAP). Color printed, covered, bound appraisal booklets are available by request for an additional printing charge.
