Qualified Experts in Identifications, Authentications, and Valuations.
As New England’s highest volume antiques shop (by a country mile), we have the privilege of seeing literally tens of thousands of antique, vintage and collectibles sales transactions per year in virtually every category imaginable, so we can really keep our fingers on the pulse of the market. Thus we are competent in virtually all areas of antiques and collectibles including fine art, precious metals, timepieces, coins, primitives, furniture, toys, modernism, textiles and countless others.
While we appraise most jewelry items, we are not GIA certified gemologists so we do not appraise loose or ungraded precious stones. We can however subcontract that work to others with whom we have good relationships and can trust.

Please be sure to include high quality images of your item as they are required for us to adequately research and appraise your item.
Here are a few tips that can help you take images of your item:
- Place the item in a well lit space without clutter.
- Use a white-colored or natural light source if possible.
- Make sure to photograph any details such as damage or a signature.
- For objects such as art, mirrors or furniture, provide images of the back and/or bottom.
- Provide a mix of images that show the entire item as well as details.
- If possible, name your image files with descriptive titles. For example: Cane Side Chair_Front View.jpg.
