Many appraisers claim to have "years" of experience and cite their "memberships" in appraisal associations as qualifications, but Paul Royka is more than the average appraiser.  Beyond attaining a Masters Degree, having 30 years experience in art and antiques, authoring several books, hosting hundreds of appraisal lectures and events and appearing on popular TV appraisal programs, Paul has set records at his auctions and handled some of the finest items and collections to come to market.  For instance the above group of 19th century posters found in an attic in New York were sold for over $250,000 at his auction.  The lamp was found in Vermont and the owner didn't know the shade was Tiffany, he sold it for her for $10,000!  The painting was torn and sitting in a crate left in the family by their father.  Paul had it restored and it sold for over $270,000!  The vase was submitted online and Paul told the client about the history of Marblehead Pottery and got his client over $12,000 for it!  Beyond that he has worked on major artist estates including authoring several artist catalogues and presented thousands of works for sale.  Paul is always on the hunt for new treasures so why not contact him?
Paul is currently accepting consignments for upcoming auctions.  One items or entire estate/collection.  His sales reach a worldwide audience of bidders and set record prices for his clients.
