About Frank Boos Gallery

Frank Boos Gallery was founded by Frank H. Boos and his wife, Nancy Boos, in Troy, Michigan, in 1982. The business began as an auction house and appraisal firm and quickly gained a reputation as a respected authority in the field. Over the course of his career, Frank and his team appraised many famous collections, including those of Minoru and Teruko Yamasaki (Minoru was the architect for the World Trade Center, New York City) and naturalist, Dr. Walter Koelz, (who was part of the MacMillan-Byrd Arctic Expedition of 1925). Frank was one of the originals on the Antiques Roadshow. He was known as "The Bow-Tie Guy" and was one of the most popular appraisers on the show. He was even parodied on The Simpsons as the guy with the big bow tie, small round glasses, and combed back hair.  Nancy worked on the show as a triage expert at the check in desks, identifying objects and directing hundreds of participants to the correct appaisers.

Sadly, Frank passed away in 2006, but Nancy is carrying on the tradition of providing accurate and objective valuation appraisals and guidance in helping clients regarding the disposition of personal property. Contact us today to request a fair and objective valuation appraisal of personal property for insurance, estate tax, dispersal, donation, divorce, or resale purposes.


Thank you for your interest. We look forward to hearing from you soon.
