World-renowned sculptor Robert Shure was associated with the Giust Gallery and the Caproni collection for more than 15 years before purchasing it with his wife. How to tell if you own a vintage Caproni cast? There is a metal hallmark on or near the bottom or back of each piece.
Although not a certified member of the International Fine Art Appraisers, Robert Shure's vast experience comes from being the present owner of the Caproni Collection (formerly the Giust Gallery). Because of this, he has an astute awareness of many values relative to the sale of plasters originally made by Caproni, as well as knowing the values of replacement casts. With this in mind, he will provide his best-educated opinion of value, but this is not a guarantee that the work would sell for any specific amount if placed for sale.
His services would identify the reproduction, provide any information known about the original, and project replacement value as well as an estimate of its antique value.
Appraisal service is available for $125.00 per hour. Send a clear picture of the cast, a picture of the hallmark, and any identifying name on the cast to the Caproni Collection ~ Attention: Appraisal. You can send the request by email or snail mail.
