David Lindquist, co-owner of Whitehall Antiques in Chapel Hill has recently had an article published in the newly released book: Journal of Advanced Appraisal Studies–2012 (ISBN:978-1-105-57805-2). Edited by Todd W. Sigety for The Foundation for Appraisal Education of The International Society of Appraisers, the book encompasses a wide range of significant issues in the field of professional appraising and is the most important annual publication in the appraisal field. Mr. Lindquist’s article explores in depth the authentication and valuation of multi-part antiques. While specifically intended for America’s leading antiques and art appraisers, this compendium of articles newly prepared for this book is quite approachable and fascinating for anyone interested in art and antiques, especially those who are desirous of collecting and authenticating the best in every field.
Whitehall Antiques, a fixture on Franklin Street for over 80 years and now in the historic Villa Tempesta/Teo, is owned by David Lindquist and his daughter Elizabeth, now the president of the company. In addition to offering a comprehensive array of authenticated 18th and 19th century antiques, Whitehall Antiques offers full appraisal and estate liquidation advice, whether that involves sale in local, national or international market places.
From his series on HGTV on antiques authentication to lectures at major national antiques and appraisal events, Mr. Lindquist is widely sought for his teaching and authentication expertise. Now working exclusively in the appraisal field as an expert consultant to appraisers across the nation, Lindquist continues to work locally and regionally with Whitehall-Hampton Appraisals as expert consultant and is available for local consultations in addition to his national work.
Of related interest, this year brings to Chapel Hill the 32nd Annual Whitehall Antiques Summer Series on Antiques for six days from July 22-27th. While primarily attended by antiques appraisers, auctioneers and dealers from throughout the United States and Canada, the courses are also open to and attended by collectors both local and national. This summer the courses are: Silver, An Advanced Seminar; American Federal Furniture, It’s English and French Antecedents (with a day at Ayr Mount turning the collection upside down and inside out under the expert guidance of both of the Lindquists); and Identifying Oriental Rugs. Brochures about the courses and the national experts teaching them are available at Whitehall or on line at: www.whitehallantiques.com.
Copies of many of Mr. Lindquist’s eight books on antiques are available at Whitehall and through on-line booksellers. The Journal of Advanced Appraisal Studies is available directly at: Foundation for Appraisal Education, 201 West Lake St, #214, Chicago, IL 60606.
