Inventory & Collections Management

Frequently people amass significant collections of objects, or works of fine art, which they do not have the time to adequately document. These collections often have substantial monetary, social, historic, and sentimental value.  The lack of organized records, and an electronic database, may lead to a loss of important information for valuation and other purposes. Clients often find that it is beneficial to have records that are easily accessible and readily available to share with insurance companies, members of their families, or collectors of similar kinds of objects. 


Jim presents customers with services that range from the development of a basic inventory to in-depth collections management records. He provides a list of objects by category.  This may include works of fine art (prints, paintings, drawings, sculpture), collectibles, and other assets grouped by category such as furniture, porcelain, silver, and crystal. An inventory can include the following descriptive information.


  • Object type (painting, print, sculpture, collectable, etc)

  • Photograph

  • Subject matter

  • Artist/Maker

  • Material

  • Dimensions

  • Location


When the inventory is complete clients are presented with both a printed report and a computer file that can be copied and shared with interested parties.


Collections Management


Beyond the information included in an inventory Jim provides clients with full collections management services that can be customized to meet individual needs.  Beginning with an inventory, additional information is collected and recorded in order to present an in-depth picture of a customer's personal property holdings.  This includes:


  • Provenance and complete acquisition records

  • Condition Remarks

  • Mutliple Photographs

  • Exhibition and publication records
