Naylor Antiques

Early American Furnishings


    Naylor Antiques provides appraisals for estate purposes, insurance needs, equitable distribution among heirs, and tax deductible donations. We have conducted appraisals for numerous individuals, museums, and government agencies; including The Baltimore Museum of Art, The Maryland Historical Society, The Walters Art Museum, The Archdiocese of Baltimore, Mount Clare Museum House, Hampton National Historic Site (NPS), Homewood Museum (JHU), The Hammond-Harwood House, Historic Annapolis, The University of Maryland, Towson University, Morgan State University, and The Maryland State Archives. In today’s sometimes volatile antiques market, it is essential an appraiser has constant, up-to-date access to all valuation factors and recent sales comparables. Tim Naylor is a graduate of The Appraisals Studies Institute at George Washington University in conjunction with the American Society of Appraisers. He has been certified in the Uniform Standards of Appraisal Practice by the the ASA.  Our appraisals follow the strict guidelines of USPAP.  This includes impartiality concerning all subject properties and the effective use of comparables for all items appraised. Is my piece worth restoring? Who is qualified to do the work? Can you help me find the proper venue in which to market my item? Should I restore a piece first? These are just a few of many questions we can help you answer. Please contact us with your specific needs.
