Antique Appraisals

Gary Reynolds Studios   /    Furniture Makers and Designers

                          Located in the foothills of western North Carolina since 1979

Our Appraisals are not "off the cuff" appraisals, but detailed, thoroughly researched appraisals that consist of (a) Printed Media Research, (b) Internet Research, and (c) an evaluation by at least two experts in antique furniture sales and marketing.  We photograph and catalog each item to be appraised and conduct that appraisal from those documents to insure that no unauthorized person visits your home.

Our Evaluations Portfolio consists of a detailed analysis of each piece of  furniture, antique or not, that you wish to have included.  Each piece is given an evaluation as to its general age, type of wood, type of finish, and overall condition, noting any specifics that relate to that piece.  This Portfolio is provided to the customer in video tape format with photographs provided to you on a  Memory Stick, Compact Flash Card,  or CD if desired.  This video taped Portfolio is given to you at the time of the evaluation and never leaves your possession.  This insures that no unauthorized viewing of your home or its contents is possible.
