REFERRALS - We are happy to refer you to a group of excellent tradesmen in the southern California area for your conservation and restoration needs. These experts include cabinetmakers, finishers, gilders, ceramics and glass restorers and framers. We are also happy to refer you to a list of knowledgeable local appraisers in the field of decorative art and to interior designers in the Los Angeles area who typically work with collectors and are knowledgeable in the field of antiques and decorative art.
AUCTIONS AND COLLECTIONS - Over the years Richard Gould Antiques has helped to build significant collections of English decorative art all over the United States. We are always happy to aid in the search for objects which fit niches in a growing collection. To that end we often advise clients who are interested in pieces being auctioned in the southern California area. For a small fee we will examine pieces for sale at auction and advise clients on authenticity, condition and an appropriate bid price. We will also bid for clients.
