Ancestor House Antiques


Once you become the owner of an antique, whether you purchased through us, at auction, estate sale, or inherited a piece from family or friend, it’s important to have it appraised for insurance. This is especially important if you received it as an inheritance, bought it for a bargain price, or found a one-of-a-kind piece that could be valued at more than your car or home. Whatever the case, you should have it appraised for replacement value. If you were to lose the piece through fire, flood, or theft, you most likely wouldn’t be able to replace it with an identical piece, but you should receive its monetary value to buy another piece of equal value. Too often, people wait until something has happened and the piece is destroyed or stolen. We cannot appraise something for its full value unless we see the item. In case of loss or damage, pictures would be helpful to us, but they don’t show the full condition as it was in the owner’s home, an absolute necessity for full value appraisal.

Insurance coverage for antiques and collectibles is relatively inexpensive and brings a great deal of peace of mind.

We charge an hourly rate for appraisal, which we’ll be happy to discuss with you in detail.
