Art Appraisal Services

Art Appraisal Services

Fine art (including paintings, sculptures, drawings, prints, etc.) and art objects may not be covered under standard insurance policies. To protect your collection of artworks and art objects, make sure they are professionally appraised and properly insured. Christian Brothers Services experts can assist your organization with its art appraisal and authentication needs through our partnership with a well-respected art appraisal firm.

Our trusted advisors specialize in appraising fine art, jewelry, antiques, furniture and decorative items. They regard research and analysis to be the most important aspects of the appraisal process. Their qualified appraisers, supported by professional researchers, place an overall value on items by taking into account their provenance, examining their historical significance and analyzing the current state of the market for comparable items. They have over 20 years of experience providing appraisal and consultation services for religious institutions, universities and schools.

All appraisal reports are written according to the guidelines set forth by the Uniform Standards of Professional Appraisal Practice (USPAP). The appraisers and researchers also abide by a strict code of ethics set forth by the International Society of Appraisers (ISA) or the American Society of Appraisers (ASA).

Our experts also offer a range of consultation services and can advise your organization with regard to preserving and displaying your collection, liquidation and donation, and other aspects of collection management.
