Maker and Restorer of Fine Bows
Michael J. Taylor
here is frequently a need for more immediate information about a bow outside the
realm of its provenance.
Nevertheless, there can be nothing more joyous than the discovery that an apparent
worthless bow has a value much higher than previously thought. The usual outcome being
that the bow has been worryingly under insured. As instruments and bows appreciate in
value, it is very important that there is proper expert advice with a written appraisal for the
insurance company detailing all the pertinent facts.
Equally, in advance of a major claim, insurance companies will require a letter of
assessment on the damage sustained plus the cost of restoring the same.
