Value the Past is the first appraisal service of its kind, providing access to a network of top-quality professional appraisers across North America.
We specialize in personal property appraisals of fine art (painting, works on paper and sculpture), decorative art (silver, glass, ceramics, furniture, coins and stamps and accessories such as clocks and lighting) and gems and jewelry.
We offer a complete range of services including appraisals for insurance, family division, estate and probate purposes.
Value the Past honors transparent and ethical business practices. Our appraisers never offer to buy or sell your objects. And they charge by the hour, not based on appraised value. Value the Past also tracks for stolen goods prior to appraisal.
All our appraisers are accredited and certified professionals who provide personal service, meeting with you in person and examining your items first-hand. After conducting research, they provide written documentation of your appraised goods.
Value the Past also offers the Eyes on the Ground program, developed by Debra Sawatzky. Using your descriptions and photographs, we identify your objects. Our Antiquarian service goes one step further, investigating your object’s historical significance.
