Auction estimates and appraisals

If you would like an estimate of the value of an item, you can email us an image and details. We will then provide an  estimate of the auction realisable value of the item. For this free service, you can use the form below or send an email to If you are emailing more than three images, please divide the images across multiple emails with no more than three images per email, due to our email file size limit.
