To unite elegance and unity, and blend the useful with the agreeable….
—A. Hepplewhite

The definition of appraisal is a “an expert or official valuation, as for estate taxes or insurance purposes.”   Appraisals range from individual items like automobiles, antiques, and jewelry, to entire estates.  Experience is key in this area and this is where David A’s Estate Services excels.   Consider that long ago, many valuables were purchased as investments.  If you are selling, these valuables can work for you today, whether it’s for pleasure or investment.

I consider myself a history detective as I discover the uniqueness and qualities of goods and family treasures.  Because of my vast and long-standing experience and knowledge, the origin of a piece can be found or followed. While my passion is American antiques, I appreciate the significance of historical merit and craftsmanship in  all worldly antiques.

I have 30+ years of experience, and work with a wide range of clients.  I also provide the following services:
