Appraisal Links

We offer these appraisal links for use by the public. They ARE NOT MEMBERS OF The New England Appraisers Association and are listed because they offer some information about antiques and collectibles. They do not pay to be listed and we do not ask for a reciprocal link.
THEY DO PROVIDE information BUT THE FACTS ARE NOT presented as a ”Professional Appraisal”. While appraisals are not legal documents, the opinions of the appraiser, written in his appraisal report, are used in legal situations. The appraiser is often admitted as an expert witnesses.
We welcome those who wish to contribute to our links page. If you know of a link that you find useful, please contact We are anxious to make our web site useful to you. Use our pages and use our appraisers!

You can list your shop or business for free, link not required but wanted for review.
