Disclaimer: While our experts will attempt to be as accurate as possible with your appraisal, we cannot guarantee that our opinion based solely on the photos and information provided, would be our final opinion of the instruments. It is the client's responsibility to obtain an in-person appraisal from us to ensure that all details of the instruments are examined. Poesis will not therefore be held responsible or liable for any errors, damages, or losses resulting from our online photo-based appraisal.

Appraisal Form

2. Upload photos of your Instrument (REQUIRED): Click on "Browse" to upload photos

IMPORTANT: Please upload clear, high-quality photos of your instrument including the front, back, scroll, side, any stamps, marks, details, and any observable damages.
The better the quality of photos and detailed the information, the more accurate your appraisal will be. Make sure you photograph the instrument on a neutral background and NOT in its case (see sample photos on top). Each photo should be at least 1MB in size for us to see the details. Your digital camera, smart phone, or tablet (e.g. iPhone/iPad) will take good photos for you.
Image files for uploading should be in jpg format. Sizes should be around 1-6 MB.
Photograph the instrument in a well-lit room and avoid using camera's built-in flash.
