Connoisseurship and Valuation
Novotny seeks to understand the marketplace for all types of objects in the vast universe of movable new personal property, antiques and collectibles
(except for coins, stamps and jewelry).
Markets change over time. There are multiple markets. Objects frequently have more than one market. Demand must be established to determine the market to research based upon intended use.
The appraiser's objective is to identify and research the appropriate market based on market accessibility and demand for the item and the value definition that applies.
Since 1979 Novotny has studied both common and rare objects. He will likely understand the unique quality and value characteristics that determine good, better and best for your property. His knowledge comes from market experience and daily study.
Novotny has bought, sold, traded and appraised personal property since 1979.
