For thirty years our experts have prepared appraisals for banks, attorneys, trust and estate officers, and family members who have been responsible for the dispersal of estates and collections.

We will provide a thoroughly researched, comprehensive, written appraisal whether it is for tax purposes, estate planning or dispersal, gift or charitable giving, or insurance purposes. Our experts provide USPAP-compliant appraisals (Uniform Standards of Professional Appraisal), for both fine and decorative arts, jewelry, and household contents for the purposes of insurance, estate tax, charitable donation, equitable distribution, liquidation, purchase, and sale. Our fees are competitive and follow industry standards.

If you want to know what something is worth, our experts are available to give you auction estimates for several categories of treasured possessions. Fine art from early works to modern and contemporary, fine furniture and decorative art objects; fine jewelry, silver and watches; antique rugs, runners and carpets and rare books and manuscripts.  Free Appraisal Friday is an event held every Friday for members of the public to bring their treasured possessions to Gray’s for a free appraisal and auction valuation. This event takes place at Gray’s auction showrooms at 10717 Detroit Avenue, Cleveland, OH 44102. Please contact the auction house to make an appointment.
