Informal & Written Valuations & Advice
Whether you need an approximate guide price with a view to selling art in the UK, or formal written valuations, for Insurance and Probate for example, we can help. We can provide condition reports for your art and offer guidance on the viability of repairs or restoration of your painting or artwork. Wherever possible, we can also offer advice on the authenticity of a painting and help determine the period in which it was painted. At extra cost, and subject to feasibility, we can research the artist and painting, where known. Based in Sevenoaks, Kent, near London, we offer advice and valuations of antique and modern art, based on current market prices and our experience as art dealers, each with over thirty-five year’s of experience.

Please note that we cannot accept liability for losses, financial or otherwise, to any persons connected with our valuations service.
