Valuation Services

Heritage Meets Technological Innovation

When we are asked to provide a valuation for an item we are not able to appraise, we let the client know up front and utilize a network of contacts to find an expert.

Free Initial Consultation - A valuation may not always be expensive, however it may have value. I am certainly not interested in reviewing your objects, only to follow up with a document to explain why your art or objects are worth less than you expected.

We will never perform a valuation that we don’t believe serves the best interest of the client. At BnB Antiques, we have extensive hands-on experience and the ability to embrace the use of technology in our valuation process.

We are experienced professionals. We dedicate an extensive amount of time researching auction catalogs as well as attending live events. We are excited to be an organization completely immersed in the marketplace of material culture.

With a deep understanding of how to use and interpret online pricing databases, we are confident our services provide the expertise necessary to help anyone who would like a valuation of a work of art or decorative object.

Many of my clients today are concerned that precious family heirlooms will not be preserved for future generations.

  • Attention to detail and a humble devotion to integrity.
  • US-PAP compliant valuations that are prepared with expert knowledge and foresight.

Perhaps a valuation can be a simple list of objects with prices, but our organization works diligently to ensure every valuation we complete is about a whole lot more than just a list of stuff and how much it is worth.

Family history is priceless. If an item that has been passed down for many generations has significant meaning to a family, then it does change the value of the item. Most families are unwilling to part with family heirlooms despite their value in the retail marketplace. Many of our existing clients simply want to see important pieces saved for future generations.

  • We are dedicated to responsibility and required to show our work. 
  • During the evaluation of each item, we are doing our homework
  • Documenting the process, and making sure the valuation we provide is exceptional.

Estate Sales are a common method used for downsizing, however the focus may be on liquidation of assets. Our focus is always on conservation and preservation of family history for educational purposes.  

E-mail, call, or send a text message.

We will take things step by step, but we will never perform a valuation that we don’t believe serves the best interest of the client.

 Base rate is currently $175 per hour for field work and research, and $15 per hour for clerical work.

Any family that has a recorded history for more than 100 years is significant for the purposes of historical conservation and preservation.

Items your family has collected may have historical significance and can be saved from being discarded or sold. Without a professional valuation, there is a risk that important family heirlooms and historical objects could be lost forever. Estate Sales are another way to accomplish this objective; however they often focus on liquidation of assets for monetary purposes. Our focus is always on conservation and preservation of family history for educational purposes.

This private vineyard is near a local Wildlife Refuge and certainly a beautiful place to visit.

We set up our canvas tent in the yard facing the vineyard and decided it was time to go glamping.

About Us

Private Collection In Historic Philadelphia

BnB is for 'bread n butter' plates, our petite passion.

- Mission -

Representing luxury that is good for the individual, good for the planet, good for society.

Conservation and preservation of material culture.

In the beginning I was a collector of stamps. My grandfather gave me an antique watch and our family entrusted me with a treasure trove of antique objects. Part of a family of collectors, I live in a home filled with art and antiques inherited from family. Boston, New York, Philadelphia and Baltimore furniture. Understandably there are some incredible antiques in a family from the Philadelphia region for over 330 years. Once you enter the BnB Gallery, it is obvious that we love to buy beautiful objects but may not wish to sell them, especially family heirlooms.

Everyone in our family has a true appreciation for family heirlooms and our focus is on preservation and provenance. I was the only son to get the collecting bug, and like most collectors, I started out early. Trunks, suitcases, and boxes sealed for generations, filled with objects that had belonged to our ancestors. Rooting around and unearthing precious items under the house one day, I decided I wanted to be involved with the conservation of material culture in one way or another. I decided to study antiques and after many hours of study... I still have much to learn. I received my certification as a professional appraiser and today I remain focused on conservation. I find many homes like our own, with art or objects passed down for many generations. 

Our home has been transformed into an Art Gallery filled with material culture and five unique guest rooms where breakfast is served daily.

Guests have an opportunity to experience the historic Philadelphia neighborhood and our comfortable organic style that changes naturally.

I am a collector with a passion for provenance and photography. The Gallery is an alternative space to showcase art and material culture. We invite artists to display their work along with the art and objects in the collection. The Gallery is the perfect historical home to showcase our collection of material culture.  Interior design inspired by history with perhaps a contemporary modern twist.

The Gallery is open daily and operates as a full-service bed and breakfast as well as hosting private events, corporate office functions and gallery tours in historical Philadelphia.
