What you need to know.
During the course of a Geolat Companies fine art appraisal, your work of art will be photographed, then carefully evaluated and researched to accurately document origin and condition. Geolat Companies fine art appraisal reports provide complete documentation of all findings, including a color photograph and detailed description or the piece, its history, quality and condition.
Value is determined using a holistic approach that takes into consideration the component parts and the overall nature and condition of the finished piece as well as prevailing market conditions and the actual purpose of the appraisal (insurance replacement cost or fair market value).
Of course, we maintain complete confidentiality with regard to your appraisal and our client records.
Dear Patti and Judy,
Thank you so much for your prompt attention to my request to sell the Muso.
I also wanted to express my appreciation for your kindness and caring about the need to do so.
Thank you both so much. As time goes by, I will be back with other things for evaluation
and look forward to seeing you both again.
