obert J. Connelly is the rare professional with a hunger for knowledge and a passion for sharing it. Bob spends hours in his large, personal library, reading about the antiques, collectibles, decorative arts, clocks and watches, classic cars, and sports memorabilia he appraises. Yet he always has time to share his knowledge in appraisal clinics, on radio and TV, in the classroom and at lectures and seminars. (And he keeps his audiences spellbound as this letter tells.)
Internationally, Bob was honored recently by the British Royal Institution of Chartered Surveyors, which elected him a Fellow (FRICS) -- its eminent designation -- by invitation of its Governing Council.
In the News
Recognized internationally as an appraiser and expert witness, Bob Connelly is better known in his hometown of Binghamton as a trustworthy and colorful auctioneer of art, antiques and real estate. The August 8, 2009 on-site auction at the Bradley house in Skaneateles, NY was a case in point. The large, day-long Estate auction featured antiques, artwork, furniture, posters, toys, dolls, stoneware, pottery, glassware, clocks & watches, Oriental rugs, fabrics and linens, tools, and other collectibles. Antiques and The Arts Online wrote a lively and informative review of the auction, which provides an inside look at why locals extol Bob as "Binghamton's Best"! Read it for yourself! [PDF: 230 kb]
