There is just no telling what you’ve got hiding in your home. A couple over in Steamboat Springs found quite a surprise stuffed in the back of their barn: a folk-art cabinet worth $20,000! The homeowners were planning to sell off some of their furniture and called in a professional appraiser. While there, they thought they would show the appraiser the cabinet that was in the barn. It had been there since they moved in left behind from the previous owner and it was something they were happy to get rid of. They thought it might be worth 200 bucks at the most. Turns out that a customer at the consignment shop recognized the cabinet as one from Vermont artist Stephen Huneck. Further inspection revealed Huneck’s signature and date of creation. It was the real deal and worth quite a bit.
Clearly, a story like this should have you running to your garage, basement or attic to see what you’ve got stuffed in there. Before cashing in you’ll need to consider providence. That is the termed used by professional art dealers to determine where a particular piece comes from. There have been hundreds of stories of paintings thought to be the work of masters only to be duds. It’s understandable when you consider that through the generations most serious art students spend time copying a masterpiece to try and learn the technique of the original painter. It’s not a stretch to imagine those copies ending up in some yard sale.
What about valuable furniture? Again, think of the providence. If you can remember buying that item from a furniture store than chances are it’s not going to be worth a lot of money. On the other hand if you have a piece that was handed down to you from a relative then it might make sense to have it appraised to see what it could be worth.
