Quilt Appraisals and Services: Quilts Old and New

Why Appraise?
To find out what your quilt is worth in case you want to:
-insure it
-sell it, fair market, or
-give it away (donation for tax purposes, etc.)

What is an Appraisal?
A written document prepared by a recognized professional determining ownership, describing the item, describing condition, describing the method used to determine value and sighting resources used to arrive at the appraised value. Signed , dated, and accompanied by a seal if the appraiser is represented by a recognized appraisal organization and a statement of the appraisers qualifications.

Cost: $75.00 an appraisal or a fee established as special circumstances warrant.

Appraisals are arranged on a case by case basis.
Appointments are always pre arranged except situations where an appraiser is contracted by an organization to conduct appraisals at a particular venue. All appraisals must be conducted in a confidential manner as there is a fiduciary trust entered into between an appraiser and a client once the agreement to appraise has been established.

Appraiser Qualifications

My knowledge and expertise has been acquired over the last forty years of buying, collecting, and selling examples of fine Antique American Furniture, Art, Period Decorative Objects with a specialty in American Folk Art and Textiles.

I became a Certified Quilt Appraiser in 1989. I was one of the founding board members to establish the Quilt Certification Program for the American Quilter’s Society. I am currently still co-administrator of that program.

In 1972 Pilgrim / Roy Antiques & Interiors was opened and as a service to customers and the general public we began offering appraisal services. I continue to offer these services today.

I am one of the original five member board that established the Quilt Appraisal Program for the American Quilters Society in Paducah, Ky. 1986 / 1989.

I have remained on that board consistently since then. I continue to teach, administrate, test, and certify qualified candidates for AQS.
