Estimated Retail Appraised Value, this service will provide an estimate based on the information you provide as well as an evaluation of the art's general market value range. This is not for insurance, estate, or tax use. Please Note: This online appraisal notes that we have not inspected the specific artwork in question in person, and that the appraisal is based on information you have supplied and we cannot verify. We do not certify any online valuations; we make them available for casual collectors interested in current values only. Although I'm not a certified art appraiser, I have collected and worked with animation cels and drawings for over two decades, and own a vast collection of cels and original drawings, many of which are featured on celfcentered.com. Although I conduct research to determine fair market value on items submitted for appraisal, comparable items and/or recent sales information is not always available. In addition to market research, accurate appraisals are determined based on the information you provide. Therefore, it's important that you include any documentation or any other pertinent information you may have for each cel, drawing, or other animation art that you want appraised, and that you provide a current photo(s) and an accurate description of the cel or drawing, including any visible or other apparent condition issues. Any appraisal I provide does not represent a guaranteed monetary value. At best, my evaluation provides an approximate, current market value, based on the most recent sale of a similar item, and the accuracy of the documentation and item description that you provide. A recent photo must accompany all appraisal requests. The accuracy of appraisals cannot be guaranteed and are the opinion CelfCentered only. Also, be aware that the value of your cel or drawing is vulnerable to both market and condition changes. Celf-centered has the right of refusal due to the condition and nature of any item or unanswered questions on questionnaire or inadequate image picture download. Any refusal shall be deemed to terminate any contract and must be made first by email and second to refund the balance of any unused portion of deposit. Celf-Centered cannot be held liable for web activities such as image loader not properly functioning or cyber security.
