Free Appraisals

Every Tuesday our gallery is open from 10am to 1pm for free evaluations of up to five items. We can also make private appointments for those with jewelry or other items that require discretion. Additionally, our specialists can come to you when there is an entire estate or significant property to evaluate. Furniture, paintings, jewelry, silver, carpets, porcelains, books, lamps, vintage automobiles and many other categories can be appraised. Private appraisals can be arranged by calling our offices at (203) 880-5200.

We now offer free evaluations in New Canaan. On the first Thursday of each month bring up to five items (or photographs) to the Coldwell Banker offices at 170 Main Street, across from the library.

We can also provide free appraisals of antiques and fine art from images emailed. Please include dimensions along with any other particulars and forward images to jack@fairfieldauction.com
