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
