Antiquities: Caveat Emptor - Live Webinar!

Join auction house alum and Certified appraiser Molly Morse Limmer, AAA, as she discusses the antiquities market. Antiquities can bring a hotbed of issues: provenance, authenticity, country of origin, import and export laws. How do appraisers weigh these factors when determining values? What are the current auction house policies versus law? How does that affect value?

This webinar will provide you with a basic overview of the antiquities market, the categories involved, and the complex issues associated with collecting, owning, appraising and selling ancient works of art. Ms. Limmer will bring her experience of two decades in the antiquities market, and with special attention to navigating the intricacies unique to this eld, interspersed with amusing anecdotes and fun facts. 

Learning Objectives: 

  • How to recognize an antiquity and what is considered part of the category

  • Basic factors for determining saleability and valuability

  • What questions to ask on a client visit

  • Tell-tale signs for verifying condition and authenticity
