What you need to know.

During the course of a Geolat Companies fine art appraisal, your work of art will be photographed, then carefully evaluated and researched to accurately document origin and condition. Geolat Companies fine art appraisal reports provide complete documentation of all findings, including a color photograph and detailed description of the piece, its history, quality and condition.

Value is determined using a holistic approach that takes into consideration the component parts and the overall nature and condition of the finished piece as well as prevailing market conditions and the actual purpose of the appraisal (insurance replacement cost or fair market value).

Of course, we maintain complete confidentiality with regard to your appraisal and our client records.
