CONSERVATION & AUTHENTICATION
If the appraiser deems it necessary, a conservation proposal will be included as part of your verbal consultation fee as a courtesy. Our art conservators are academically and/or museum-trained in conservation science and have provided services internationally for the finest museums and conservation facilities. Going forward with a conservation plan can often increase the value of your piece and ensure the highest sale potential for your item.
Our conservators adhere to a strict code of ethics as they determine the necessity and cost-effectiveness of conservation and restoration services. We will address the following concerns:
The practicality of conservation and restoration services
The feasibility of conservation and restoration with regard to the risk of further damage
The various treatment options for the work of art under consideration
