About the Appraisers

Mark Lavendier has been a book dealer for over 25 years. He specializes in rare books and publishing. He deals books, but he is not a collector of books, allowing him to remain impartial with his professional advice. Mark grew-up in a household that treasured books; his grandmother had a personal library, and his grandparents were antique dealers. Mark’s parents were also in the antique and flea market business. Books have always been a big part of the family antique business, so Mark has always been immersed in beautiful and interesting books.

Steven M. Fusco, I.C.A. is a full time appraiser of fine art, antiques and personal property for insurance/damage loss, IRS Charitable Contribution/Estate, Market Value, Divorce and Orderly Liquidation purposes. Mr. Fusco is second generation auctioneer in the state of Rhode Island since 1980 and has been active in the antiques and fine art trade as a dealer and collector for over 30 years.
