Furniture and Antiques Appraisal

A furniture and antiques appraiser is a person that evaluates and gives an opinion on the value of a commodity. He or she has credentials and a member of the American Society of Appraisers.

Antiques are commodities that are difficult to place a price because of the lack of definite market value. Appraisers can provide a value based on their expert knowledge about furniture and antiques. It is based upon their experience and the procedures of appraisals outlined by the Uniform Standards of Professional Appraisal Practice.

  • Choose an appraiser with credible credentials, permits and licenses that are issued by your state’s Appraisal board. You can ask an appraiser to provide you these credentials for your perusal.
