Sourcing particular pieces for a collection
If you are after a particular object to add to your collection we can facilitate in sourcing such a piece.
Identification and Valuation
Many people come across items, either through metal detecting or passed down through generations and do not know firstly, if their object is authentic and secondly, if it holds value. We can aid in determining whether an object is a genuine antiquity. If the object lies in our areas of expertise we will provide what further information we can, from dating the piece, to the region the object most likely came from. Lastly, if desired, we can ascertain the value of the piece.
After identifying if you possess a genuine antiquity, we can aid in the valuation process, specifically for insurance purposes.
Selling an antiquity
Many of our pieces come to us from private collectors. Whether an item has been bequeathed to you or you wish to part with an object bought previously, we can advise you and assist with the transfer of property.
Care and display of antiquities
We also offer services in photography (this can be for insurances purposes or for your personal records), cleaning and mounting. Cleaning and mounting antiquities is a delicate process and requires a deal of expertise. We can assist with the whole process to ensure your antiquity is handled with care, professionalism and that the end result does the piece justice.
