BUYING & SELLING
We advise clients on the sale and purchase of collections or single items, by auction or private treaty, recently we have advised on the sale and purchase of paintings, sculpture and furniture by auction in Zurich, Geneva, Paris, Marseilles, New York, Boston, Sydney, Hong Kong, Copenhagen, London, Dublin, Edinburgh and the provincial salerooms in the UK.
We specialise in the sale of good quality items by private treaty, frequently finding the end buyer for items that may otherwise have passed through many hands, thus maximising the results for our clients. We also advise buyers, including many British museums, on their potential purchases, including preparing valuations for grant giving bodies.
We are familiar with the policy on disposal of the Museums Association and other bodies and are happy to advise on ethical disposals.
We are registered with the Art Loss Register and where there are gaps in provenance we are pleased to be able to search their global facility.
