Silver & Objects of Vertu

We have a number of silver consultants at our disposal who have an extensive range of experience in the silver world. The department is led by ‘Nelson’, (Mark Nelson-Griffiths), who is a LAPADA member and the silver consultant for NASADA Fairs. We will advise, value and accept any silver items and ensure they are placed in the correct sale.

We include Objects of Vertu as well. This covers a whole range of items that are collectable and which may include portrait miniatures for which we have our own specialist, and any small unusual item for which we will give an estimate or ask someone who will know.
