Anthony Scornavacco has been the Senior Appraiser at H & B
Gallery for over 15 years. His services have been called
upon by the Minneapolis Institute of Arts and other art and
antique organizations around the country. He actively
appraises over 80% of the items sold at H & B Gallery, which
provides him with unique insight into current market prices for
a diverse array of antiques and art. Having participated
in over a dozen antique shows across the country this year (from
Florida to California), he is kept abreast of the current
national market values of antiques as well.
H & B Gallery offers appraisal services both on site at the
residence and in house at our store. The rate for on site
visits is $125 an hour, with a minimum charge of one hour.
This is recommended for items that are large or heavy, or for
appraisals of many items. The in house rate is $95
an hour, with a minimum charge of one hour. This works
best for smaller items such as jewelry, china, silverware, or
few piece items such as a set of chairs or small mirror.
Appraisal pricing falls into three categories: Insurance,
Market, and Estate Sale pricing. Any one or combination of
these may be provided for the appraised items, depending on the
customer's need. For more information or to arrange an
appraisal, please feel free to call us an arrange an
appointment. Walk-ins are welcome, but depending on the
store's current activities, an immediate appraisal may not be
available for the considered item.
