LMA provides a range of services for private owners of fine and decorative art objects, museums, and for trust and estate professionals. Initial consultations are usually at no charge or obligation and generally require some background information about the prospective project including past appraisals or inventories and photographs. Whether working with a single item or large collection, we are able to assist clients in meeting their every need. While auctions can provide an excellent means of bringing interested parties together, they require near-perfect orchestration to produce the optimum outcome. Lark Mason’s experience as an expert at Sotheby’s, as Director of Online Auctions for Sothebys.com, and creative force behind iGavel, Inc., enable him to provide guidance and expert advice for owners of works of art that are considering the auction alternative.
