Valuations

How does one decide the value of a piece of art? One could argue that the market decides this for us. Whatever someone is willing to pay for an item is what it’s worth. On a practical level, though, there are precedents set around certain art. Depending on the piece – fine arts, sculpture, jewelry, furniture or other special items – there are often historical elements to consider.

If you have items that you want to sell at auction, here are some tips on how to make the process as easy as possible:

  • Take 2 or 3 photos of each piece
  • Send photos of each item to info@linwoodsauction.com
  • Note: We cannot give jewelry valuations based on photos

You can also come to Linwoods Auction Gallery for a valuation session or schedule a specialist to make a visit. Call us at 626.457.8818 for more information.
