Ibeji Art offers a unique on-line appraisal service giving you an answer for all the above cases
The appraisal is done with the method developed and described in detail in the “Encyclopedia of the Ibeji”.
It is enough to send to us, by e-mail, four photos – front, left side, right side, and back – of the Ibeji (single or pair), well illuminated on a light background. Write the height of the Ibeji as well. If you can not send the four photos of the Ibeji, in the positions described above, send initially the photos you have.
The appraisal of the Ibeji takes into consideration the quality of the sculpture and of the patina, the degree of rarity, the workshop of the carver, and other small details; therefore the more complete are the photos provided the more correct the appraisal will be.
We will send you, not later than five days from your request, an e-mail with the estimated value of the Ibeji, in US dollars.
The estimated value of the Ibeji is based upon the assumption you are sure about the tribal genuiness of the Ibeji photographed. We can not verify the genuiness from the photos only and therefore the appraisal does not provide any positive or negative information about it.
The authenticity of the Ibeji can only be verified by a direct examination and it is certified only with our expertises.
The cost of the service “WHAT IS THIS IBEJI WORTH” is 50 USD for each single Ibeji and 75 USD for each pair. The payment has to be done at the time of the request or before the appraisal is sent. Discounts apply for multiple Ibeji submitted at the same time.
Ibeji Art reserves the rights to decline any appraisal request, in case can not be done without a direct examination of the statuette.
