To provide a professional and fair level of service to all our customers, all antique appraisal, quotation, and photographic work will be carried out using current LAPADA recommended rates. Also we cannot appraise the item(s) from photographs alone, we must be able to see the item(s) in person. A pre-arranged appointment is necessary if you wish to have any items appraised and/or photographed professionally. Please review the following information.

Antique Silver Appraisals and Quotations

This information is intended for anybody who wishes to have an up-to-date appraisal of their silverware for insurance purposes. All antique silver appraisals are based on replacement value. The charges are based on total value OR per hour depending on the number of items and work involved:

With your silverware you will receive a typed and signed appraisal itemising your piece(s) with full description, date, maker and origin, and replacement valuation. A good quality photograph, a biography of the maker (if applicable), and an A4 envelope.
