“Antique” is an age, not an item; therefore, any item can be an antique if it is old enough. The more common antique items that we appraise include: furniture, fine art, firearms, jewelry, and decorative art.


How old does an item need to be in order to be considered an antique? Answer: personal property items are normally considered antique when they reach 100 years old. It is important to keep in mind, however, that age alone does not create value: condition, uniqueness, rarity and scarcity, along with age, often create higher market value. The old adage “few were made or few remain” will drive market value in the minds of collectors and even casual buyers.


The simple question is how do you know how and where to gain the information you are seeking on your “antiques”?


First, answer this question: do you have items that are approximately 100 years old or older; if so, you may want to consider scheduling one of our experienced antique appraisers for an onsite examination. It is simple, easy, and the phone call is obligation-free.


Another option to consider, especially if you only have a few items, is to call us for an onsite cost-saving remote appraisal. Our Senior Certified Appraisers will evaluate your information and provide a documented appraisal value opinion.


The experienced antique appraisers of Nugent Appraisal have the knowledge to identify the most unique item and the market resources to determine the item’s demand. In other words – we our expert antique appraisers.
