About

Accredited Member ISA. My main interests are ANTIQUITIES of Native American, Western, Sporting art, Bowie Knives, and antique guns I have experience identifying Ivory. There are many different schools of Bowies, including Sheffield and American. Currently I'm on the board of directors of the Antique Bowie Knife Association and was past President and Journal editor. ther origins including weapons (tomahawks, trade knives, spears, bows, arrows quivers & related), beadwork, basketry, pottery, turquoise/silver jewelry, Zuni/Navajo/Hopi, and weavings. Cowboy related collectibles such as antique guns, leather (saddles, gun rig holsters, belts, bridles & boots), related metal work such as spurs, bits, and misc. antique guns made prior to 1898. I have experience in writing reports for exporting ivory and can also make statements for the US Fish and Wildlife Service on ivory items for export or otherwise.  I have an affinity for all sporting art and specific paintings related to my interests. Artists such as Lynn Bogue Hunt, Frank Stick, Phillip Goodwin and others with similar styles, have been focal points at some time during my career. Early fur trade, sporting art advertising, and duck decoys also fall under my experience. Gold and Gambling items have struck a chord with me as well. I have bought and sold most all of the aforementioned items for many years. That gives me an edge when charged with an appraisal assignment. The completion of a Master of Science in Agribusiness culminated in a 100-page thesis, that experience and process taught me the importance of valid research and undertaking research in an unbiased light using accepted methods. Continuing education (with ISA) has been extremely important, especially in written reports for appraisals and always having ethics and right and wrong in mind. Always take the high road! I have worn and will continue to wear many hats in my industries, which I believe gives my clients a complete package with the most experience for the genre that I work in and around. Identifying best markets for collectibles can be challenging at best. The quest for knowledge is never complete. Give me a call and/or email to discuss your needs, today. Sincerely, Jason Baldwin
