We will decide for the client, upon request:
- The authenticity of the item – work of Art
- If the instance or period for the artist is appropriate, etc.
- The item’s estimated worth in ten years’ time, based on our experts’ experience - not ‘optimism’.
- What the possibilities may be for a prompt resale.
- What the fair market value - the replacement value is
- Advice on the splitting up of a collection for inheritance, divorce or other purposes
- Advice on creating an Art collection, where to begin.
Kindly bear the following in mind:
Our Expertise Department was created to provide highly qualified consulting services to collectors and institutions - owners of works of Art who require a certificate of authenticity or an all-purpose estimation.
Certain sectors working in the Art market may not possess the requisite or scientific / qualified training, neither hold a ratified business appraiser’s certification or legal tax office registry and therefore may be unable to issue authentication documents.
Our team comes to restore the consistency of all those involved directly or indirectly in the Art Market in Greece and to ensure and guarantee the utmost of quality services.
