Connoisseurship and Valuation 

Novotny seeks to understand the marketplace for all types of objects in the vast universe of movable 

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 relevant  market to research (based upon intended use). 

The appraiser's objective is to identify and research  the appropriate market based on  market accessibility, demand and the value definition that applies.

Since 1979 Novotny has bought, sold, traded and appraised common and rare objects. This helps him understand the unique quality and value characteristics that determine good, better and best for your property. His knowledge comes from experience and  daily study.
