Understanding the Market

Connoisseurship and Valuation 

Novotny seeks to understand the marketplace for all types of objects in the vast universe of movable personal property (with the exception of coin, stamps and fine gems and jewelry).. 

Market demand, per object to be valued, must be understood to establish  the appropriate  market to research based upon intended use. Since 1979 Novotny has carefully developed his connoisseur-ship of object types. He seeks to identify and understand the unique quality and value characteristics that determine good, better and best, 

This kind of knowledge only comes with market experience and intensive study of both common and rare object types, and the technology that produces such objects. 

Objects frequently have more than one market in which the object is bought and sold. The appraiser's objective is to identify and research  the appropriate market relevant to  intended use.
