Appraising Hawaiian Artifatcs

Steve Goodenow owner of The Gallery at Hawaiian Stones & Artifacts has appraised many major collections of Hawaiian Artifacts and Bottles for insurance purposes, estate matters, legal disputes and private collectors.

Appraisals cannot be conducted over the phone since there are many variables that must be taken into consideration. Among them are:

  • Rarity of piece - As an example many bottles look alike but some with slight variations can be quite rare.
  • Condition - As they say: condition, condition, condition. A chip, tear, or scratch can greatly devalue a piece.
  • Artistic Presentation - Just like valuable art, Artifacts of the same type differ in value based on how the piece looks, the material used, the color and texture.
  • Provenance - The history of the artifact is important. Where is it from; who owned the piece; how was it discovered are all important determining factors when considering value.
  • Retail sales of similar items
  • Auction records of similar items
