A number of professional experts are in my network of Restorers. Every expert has his own special qualifications in restoring the past: paintings, peper, furniture, porcelain. These relations are of course very dear to me. Most of our fathers already worked together in their generation.
Fathers and Sons
The fathers learned their professional skill to their sons an daughters. Like my father taught me the skills I need to qualify and valuate art and antiques.
Restored or not restored, that’s the question
For me, to valuate antique objects requires awareness of restorations. Restorations have consequences for the value of an object. Special equipment for appraisals help me to confirm restorations as well as the age and quality of the performed restorations.
