Object Information Studies
Sometimes clients are primarily interested in acquiring knowledge about the history of a particular kind of personal property. For example, an individual may want to learn about where an object was made, when it was produced, and its intended market. This historic context, for both decorative and fine artworks, can reveal fascinating information that enriches the experience of ownership. Studies of this kind can be an ideal gift for someone who is interested in knowing more about something they own, but lack the time to undertake research on their own.
Jim is happy to talk to clients about their particular interests, gather information, and provide the results of his research in the form of a report. These studies are not appraisals but can provided the basis for future valuation studies.
