The estimation of the value of goods belonging to the different catego-ries of conspicuous consumption could be complicated by various fac-tors, such as the heterogeneity of the pieces and their quality, or the changes in habit and style in view of models of social distinction. With reference to 15th century Lombardy, the paper considers the moment of esteem and its values (legal, economic, moral and social), and con-cerns some significant categories of luxury goods such as jewellery and pieces of clothing, handwritten and printed books, antique objects and artwork, to analyze some peculiarities of the expertises procedures and identify the most important changes that have occurred in time; and to establish, moreover, who were the people and expertses suitable for evaluating the different types of goods.
Keywords: Esteem procedures; Conspicuous consumption; Social dis-tinction; 15th century Lombardy; Prices and values.
