We are Fine Art Appraisers, Specialists in Works of Fine Art from Antiquity through Contemporary

we are at your service for the following:

The N. I. A., under the aegis and approval of the Vatican Museum Collection, the National Museum of Florence, Casa Buonarotti, and other leading museums, has been appointed to appraise a collection of more than 17 newly cast Michelangelo sculptures.

These life size bronzes, cast from the original marble masterpieces will be in the exact dimensions and details of the originals and in very limited editions. These bronzes have been sanctioned by the museums as authentic and original, and will most likely be valued at over 2 billion dollars.
