New Guinea Artifact Value
Want to find a New Guinea Artifact Value
Finding a New Guinea Artifact value can be very difficult. It is a specialized field. Very few auctioneers have the in-depth knowledge of this art form. A New Guinea Artifact value ranges from virtually worthless to hundreds of thousands of dollars. Getting it right is important. The vast majority of New Guinea Artifacts are not very valuable. Any pieces that were made for sale tend to have very limited value. People who collect New Guinea Artifact are often after a particular object or objects of a particular type.
If you send me some images of your New Guinea Artifact and details I can help. Please include labels on the back, numbers and collection history. I don’t charge for helping determine values.
I have a database of New Guinea Artifacts that have sold for over a five hundred dollars. After I examine the images, I can compare your New Guinea Artifact to pieces sold. Then keeping in mind the current trends of the market I can give you a good estimate of what your New Guinea Artifact is worth.
When buying a New Guinea Artifact I go through the same process. I pay between twenty to fifty percent less than I can sell it for. On a low-value artifact that is going to be hard to sell, I need a larger profit margin to make it worthwhile. A great piece, with high value, I can deal with a small profit margin. With the rare pieces I want for my personal collection, I am happy to pay the market price.

Many pieces sold at auction reappear and sell again through dealers for far more only months later.
The New Guinea Artifact market has very limited collectors. This means that prices vary depending on what is being collected and by whom at the time.
