An appraisal of decorative personal property items is similar to a jewelry appraisal, in that it is a professional service.  The appraiser charges for their services.


 The fee for appraising the Decorative Personal Property items is:

In our office                                $ 150.00 per hour, one hour minimum

At your premise                          $ 225.00 per hour, one hour minimum 

You can expect about 30 minutes for an in-home assessment, then 30 minutes per item for most appraisals.  Items will be documented during our visit/examination then time will be spent in the office doing appropriate research and document preparation.

 As with any appraisal, the assignment is purpose specific.  If you want an insurance replacement appraisal or an estate tax appraisal or a liquidation appraisal, each appraisal is unique and charged separately.
