We can give you a first opinion free upon reception of photos by email.
This opinion could be positive, meaning that we should examine the piece to authenticate it as there's a high possibility that the piece is genuine. If so, we will, register the piece in our archives and issue a certificate.
This opinion could be also negative meaning that there's a high possibility that the piece is not by Dali in our opinion. At that step, the client will have to invest the minimum fees for physical examination.
If you want to have it confirmed, we have to proceed to the physical examination of the piece and of course we will invoice you 3% of the value with a minimum of EUR 600 / USD 720.
We use the value given by Sotheby's or Christie's to us and cross check with a market value given by The Salvador Dalí Gallery (CA). The value is then discussed and agreed with the client.
