Our services are completely independent and impartial, and as we do not buy-to-sell items, our sale
advice and brokerage services are designed to help achieve the best market value on your behalf.
|How to Submit an Item for Appraisal
Please provide clear and good quality images, displaying all sides of the item (such as the
underside of a figure, vase, or plate (even if there are no marks); or the back of a painting etc);
and please detail clearly any makers marks, stamps, signatures, or condition issues.
NB: To capture clear images of detail, hold the camera approx 10-12" inches away from the subject
and use a medium-high quality setting (2000-3000+ pixels) or macro-setting and test until clear. Try to
avoid any 'camera shake' when you take a photo, as this will blur the image.
Please include accurate dimensions and all information you know about the item, such as any
provenance, sale history, or other background information which might be helpful to the appraiser.
|How We Appraise & Value Antiques
Antiques, Art & Collectables are complex, and to appraise and value them accurately requires
careful research and specialist consultation. We call on a network of specialists with a wealth
of knowledge, information and resources. We also refer to current market trends, including the
most up-to-date auction results, price guides and reference books.
We work with the UK's leading network of antique appraisers, including members of
The British Antique Dealers' Association (BADA),
The Association of Art and Antique
The Royal Institution of Chartered Surveyors (RICS) and The
International Art and Antiques Trade Association (CINOA).
We complete almost all valuations within 5-10 working days, however some particularly rare or
highly specialist items may require further research, and in such circumstances we will keep you
informed. Please be assured that we will only provide correct and reliable information.
Our fees are highly competitive, and cover individual items, matched pairs / sets and collections.
