CIRCA Appoints Kenneth Jay Linsne as Director of Client Services

Kenneth Jay Linsner

(PRESS RELEASE) New York — CIRCA announces the launch of its newly formed Client Services Division, which offers fair market and liquidation appraisals to the owners of fine jewelry, watches, coins, and objet de vertu. The division will also oversee estate evaluations, including but not limited to, fine and decorative arts, antiques, silver and collectibles.

CIRCA has appointed Kenneth Jay Linsner, ASA and SCV, as the director of client services, overseeing all appraisal work, production, and regional events.

An appraiser since 1970, Linsner is currently a senior member of the American Society of Appraisers (ASA) and a senior certified valuer (SCV) of the International Institute of Valuers, Zurich. Linsner started his training at the Institute of Fine Arts of New York University and, upon graduating, refined his skills at the Brooklyn Museum. He has since lectured ­­­­­­­in “Appraisal Studies,” and developed the core course in “Research Methods for the Appraiser” at New York University.

Linsner is designated as a “Qualified Source” by the Department of Treasury of the United States and Office of the Attorney General, acting as an expert witness providing review and litigation support in many federal and civil cases involving artworks, their authenticity and value. In addition to a long and notable list of corporate clients, law firms, and private estates, Linsner is the director of Art Services International Group, which provides conservation and restoration services and advice to clients, public and private, around the globe, since 1975.

CIRCA’s president and co-founder, Richard Tilles, commented, “Ken comes to CIRCA with an impressive and established reputation, producing the highest quality appraisals. We believe his unique experience, will bring an enhanced level of service to CIRCA’s clients. One of Ken’s first initiatives will be hosting Appraisal events around the country, giving a wonderful opportunity to clients who have not previously had access to Ken’s capabilities and services.”

Wilkerson Testimonials

If It’s Time to Consolidate, It’s Time to Call Wilkerson

When Tom Moses decided to close one of the two Moses Jewelers stores in western Pennsylvania, it was time to call in the experts. After reviewing two candidates, Moses, a co-owner of the 72 year-old business, decided to go with Wilkerson. The sale went better than expected. Concerned about running it during the pandemic, Moses says it might have helped the sale. “People wanted to get out, so there was pent-up demand,” he says. “Folks were not traveling so there was disposable income, and we don’t recall a single client commenting to us, feeling uncomfortable. It was busy in here!” And perhaps most importantly, Wilkerson was easy to deal with, he says, and Susan, their personal Wilkerson consultant, was knowledgeable, organized and “really good.” Now, the company can focus on their remaining location — without the hassle of carrying over merchandise that either wouldn’t fit or hadn’t sold. “The decision to hire Wilkerson was a good one,” says Moses.
