“We recently hired Richard & Associates Art Appraisals to appraise five Navajo weavings being donated to the Museum of Indian Arts & Culture in Santa Fe. We found Aarin to be thorough, timely, and easy to work with. He provided the information we needed and gave us additional useful insights about the weavings. We would certainly use his services again.” – JL, Mill Valley, CA
Antique Native American Art Appraisal is a specialized field requiring in-depth knowledge of the art and artifacts of the American Indian. Many of the nuanced subtleties in this material are often not perceptible to the untrained eye. These subtleties can have an enormous affect on the value of a piece, which is crucial, as valuations in a formal appraisal need to be accurate. This accuracy makes them justifiable and defendable should they be challenged by an insurance company or the IRS etc. Richard & Associates provides qualified appraisals for charitable donations, estates, insurance needs and other purposes.
