Art & Antiques Appraisals Ltd is an independent art advisory and valuation business working with expertise from the museum, gallery, auction and academic worlds.
A large proportion of our clients are in London, although we have important clients throughout Britain and increasingly work in Europe, the United States, Asia and Australasia.
Our clients range from major institutions, museums, corporations, local authorities and historic house owners to private collectors, their trusts, executors and advisers.
We advise on sale and acquisition, negotiate private treaty sales, advise on auction consignment and purchases and undertake valuations across a wide range of disciplines for single objects or large collections.
We are widely recommended by the major specialist insurance brokers and underwriters and are key supporters of The Museum Valuation Charitable Trust.
We receive instructions from The British Museum, English Heritage, The Church of England, The Supreme Court, independent and local authority museums as well as many important private collectors and have undertaken valuations at National Trust Houses. Our valuations are widely accepted by grant giving and similar bodies such as the Heritage Lottery Fund, The Art Fund, The V&A Purchase Grant Fund, The Garfield Weston Foundation and the Government Indemnity Scheme.
Whether you live in a cottage or a castle our aim is to give you confidential, sensible impartial advice, based on know-how and experience.
