Ph.D. Antiques Appraiser

With over 150 events every year and in-home appraisal visits around the world, Dr. Lori reviews approximately 20,000 items a year.

Unlike most art and antique appraisers, Dr. Lori has a Ph.D. in art history and DOES NOT have an interest in buying people’s objects, thus ensuring an honest, ethical, and accurate appraisal.

Some appraisers don’t want you to know the true value of an object since they are interested in buying the object from you at a much lower price than its actual value. Good business for them, but not for the general public who has no idea what their items are worth.

If you are interested in selling your items, we suggest that you receive an independent appraisal from an unrelated third party. This DOES NOT mean that you should use an appraiser who was referred to you by a prospective buyer. Once you have an independent appraisal, you then have the necessary information you need to protect yourself and properly negotiate when you are selling the item.
