Valuation, conservation, framing

Valuation

If you are in possession of a work of art or artistic craftsmanship whose value you do not know, ask us for a valuation. It will be carried out by our Evaluation Commission. If you plan to sell your works through us, this service is free of charge.  

We also make written evaluations necessary for the export of artwork abroad, for insurance purposes and other legal activities. The cost of a written evaluation is 3% of the estimated value + VAT, but not less than 100 PLN + VAT. Each customer receives a written evaluation document with a photo.  

DESA Unicum specialists can also prepare and evaluate the entire art collection on behalf of an individual or institutional collector. The cost of preparing the collection is determined individually.  

Feel free to contact us - we will be happy to provide you with details of the process of valuation of works of art in DESA Unicum.

Framing of paintings 

Frames are an inseparable element of the functioning of works of art. Their selection is very important because they complement the work. Frequently we do not pay attention to frames, which is a significant mistake.  

Our specialists know how to emphasize the beauty of the artwork and will help you choose the best frame for your painting, photography or graphics.  

We offer both simple and cheaper frames, plexiglass frames and more sophisticated frames for real connoisseurs. We frame both contemporary and old objects. We will help you choose a frame that will emphasize the character of your work of art.
