If you sell an icon without knowing its actual value on the antiques market, to someone who simply called a high, attractive price, then you are likely to run into a scammer, who will then sell it at three, or maybe 10 times more expensive.

Only by entrusting the evaluation and sale of the icon to professionals, you can be sure that you will receive qualified examination results and you can sell it at a high price.

What factors influence the cost of icons

Buying icons necessarily involves an examination. The cost is influenced by many conditions, each of which is carefully examined by experts and only after that a final assessment is made. Moreover, the cost can not depend on only one indicator, as a rule, the assessment is based on a combination of factors. These include:

  • prescription. Many people understand that selling an icon of the 17th century may be more profitable than the one that was written in the 19th century. However, if a more ancient icon needs restoration, then its price may be lower than that written later.
  • the state of the icon, which is assessed by how well the colors are preserved, whether there are any cracks and damage, whether the icon has been restored before;
  • size and plot. Qualified evaluation of these indicators can also give only experts. Not always the icon of the big sizes will cost more;
  • authorship. If the old icon has a stamp, a label or a signature indicating a particular author or belonging to a particular school of icon painting, then such an item will cost more;
  • salary material. You can sell the icon in silver salary much more profitably than the one that has no salary at all.

None of these factors alone is decisive for the final cost.
