IAC22 PP - True Luxury? Appraisal Best Practices in a Counterfeit Culture

Session Description

Hermes handbags, Rolex watches, and archival fashion are the stars of the rapidly expanding personal luxury market. With the emergence of new asset categories, counterfeiters are rampantly polluting the marketplace with illegal replicas. This session will provide an overview of the complex process of authenticating luxury goods and discuss the prevalence, nuance, and quality of counterfeits. As values increase and appraisers are increasingly asked to wade into this area, it is critical to know what to look for, and when a specialist may be needed.
