Appraisals & Valuations Service

We have been art dealers specialising in Sculpture and Works of Art since 1979 and are recognised as experts of world repute in these fields. We sell mostly to private collectors and public institutions, some of which are listed below.

We are consulted by the Internal Revenue Service (IRS) of the United States of America on matters of estate evaluations and have prepared valuations for: the National Gallery of Art, Washington DC; Los Angeles County Museum of Art; the Art Gallery of Ontario, Toronto; the Keeper of The Royal Collection, St James's Palace, London and many other such organisations. We also have expertise in tax planning and the handling and deeding of gifts and legacies in lieu of tax in Canada, the UK and the USA, and we work with specialised accountants and lawyers in these countries.

Charges on application - but please note that there is a minimum charge of $250.
