Re: Appraising antiquities


Conservators and Preservation Specialists that Professional Associate or Fellow are members of the American Institute of Conservation and Historic and Artistic Works (AIC) Professional Associate or Fellow are NOT allowed to appraise any cultural object(s). It’s against the Code of Ethics and Guidelines for Practice. Therefore, they should inform the clients and/or end-users that they should contact directly an appraisers from the American Society of Appraisers (ASA).
