Independent Fine Art and Antique Valuations

Kate Bliss Ltd carries out valuations across a broad spectrum of antiques and fine art such as ceramics, furniture, paintings, textiles, jewellery and silver.

Our valuation service provides a confidential and professional service to solicitors, executors and trustees, as well as private clients.

Valuations vary from appraisal of a single item to extensive collections and complete estates.

We provide valuations for a number of different purposes including:

  • Insurance
  • Inheritance tax
  • Family division
  • Current market value
  • Asset management

Our written valuation is a concise illustrated report, which provides a clearly defined record. The document contains a detailed description of each item inspected, including measurements, distinctive marks and restoration or damage. A draft copy of the valuation is usually submitted for inspection and approval, subject to which two bound copies of the schedule are dispatched by Recorded Delivery together with a set of high resolution colour photographs.

Kate Bliss Ltd. prides itself on delivering an experienced, dedicated and professional service to all clients.

Kate is also delighted to be a specialist jewellery consultant for Hanson's Auctioneers in Derbyshire
