Appraisals

Carriage House Violins offers an appraisal service for instruments and bows.

Insurance coverage is the most common purpose for an appraisal. The assessed value is a “replacement value” or the cost at which the instrument could be replaced, with something similar, within a limited time period. This service is available when we are in agreement with the established attribution.

Appointments are preferred, and a minimum of one hour is needed for examining your instrument or bow for appraisal.

For additional items or large lots, please call for a quote.

The cost (per item) of an Appraisal is as follows:

Appraisal Type Fee
Appraisal update 50% of new appraisal fee.
Verbal appraisal $55
Bow insurance appraisal $80
Instrument insurance appraisal $110
Instrument and bow insurance appraisal $150
