Antiques and Art Research Resource

Recently, we were introduced to ArtFact which is an impressive online service that should be in every art and antique collector or dealers arsenal. Their full database contains over 6 million objects from over 500 auction houses.

“Artfact is a true one-stop information resource for answering the universal questions relating to antiques and art: What is it? How much could it be worth? Who made it? Where does it come from? Where can I get one like it? Who should sell mine?

Artfact Auction records show you the complete description and contents available from the original auction house catalog entry, often including:
– Auction title, date, and auctioneer
– Estimated value of object
– Provenance of the object
– Research notes about the object’s history and its artist/maker
– Photo(s) of object
– Actual selling price of the object
– Exhibits and literature about the object”

It’s a subscription based service. They also have a free service to give you a taste, which lets you search more than 30,000 objects for sale at Upcoming Auctions at the world’s leading auction houses.
