Appraisers and Researchers
Our professional staff is comprised of experienced appraisers and researchers. They are trained to professionally evaluate the history, features, styling, and the provenance of thousands of personal property items ranging from the ordinary and mundane to the most obscure and rare. Our accredited appraiser staff and research team provides both online appraisals and on-site appraisal services to meet a range of needs.
Professional Archivist Staff
In addition to our accredited appraiser team and research staff, we also have a staff of professionally trained archivists with twenty-six years of experience in the organization of library and museum special collections, governmental and institutional archives, and private collections.
Nugent Appraisal also has an experienced on-staff conservator, with expertise in the preservation of all types of paper, leather and photographic items. Our conservation staff is trained in assessing the elements of condition, and how best to deal with the preservation and conservation of thousands of types of items. Our goal is to make every item ‘as good as it can be’ in order to perpetuate its life and maintain the market value. This should be the goal of every professional conservator and one that our staff takes very seriously.
