Expertise & Certification
In order to insure or sell an instrument or a bow you need a value appraisal (a document with a short description and appraisal of the object) or – usually from a value of €10.000,00 and more - a certificate (a document with photographs and an exact description of the instrument as well as a precise designation as to age, place of origin, maker or school). I can issue you both, provided the instrument or the bow can be attributed.
When entering certain countries (e.g. Russia) it is recommended that you carry a "passport" for your instrument and have it stamped at the border to avoid problems when later exiting the country. We can issue such a document, provided the instrument is photographed by us.
We are equipped to take high-quality professional photographs of your instruments.
