They tell a unique story through their marvelous history. They are usually a higher quality than modern goods, and they add a touch of class to the room that modern pieces cannot match. Beautiful, attractive and sophisticated, they also often increase in value as the years march on.
The challenge with antiques is knowing what they are worth. You know how much it costs to head to the store and buy a new sofa, but what would you have to pay to replace the 19th-century fainting sofa gracing your parlor? Countless aspects of the piece affect the value, so it’s nearly impossible for you or even an insurance company to determine what the value is. However, ESC Appraisals can help you with accurate, detailed antique appraisals.
