Expertises
The expertise differs from the estimate because its main purpose is to provide a guarantee of authenticity.

It consists of a precise and detailed analysis of the item through which a document with photographic reproductions is elaborated. The document starts with a precise description of the material conditions of the examined asset, followed by a historical and artistic analysis of the object aiming, for the most important items, at an attribution of origin, time and artist based on the most recent studies of art history and antiques analysis.

For this purpose Anticonline can rely on the cooperation of some of the most respected scholars and experts specialised in specific periods or artists. If requested, considerations of value can be added to the expertise. The expertise is a charged service and its amount is calculated according to the hourly work rate, including the time spent on analysis and study. We can formulate an estimate of expense on the basis of the main data (number of objects, position, expected complexity, etc.).
