Search Service

Let us know if you are looking for a picture by a particular artist or of a specific subject, however obscure, and we would be pleased to search for it on your behalf. If purchasing at auction, we will notify you before the sale, assess condition and, if instructed, bid on your behalf. Our fee, if successful, is 20% of the hammer price.

Atelier is a member of BADA (the British Antique Dealers' Association), LAPADA (the Association of Art and Antique Dealers) and CINOA (the International Art and Antique Dealers Association).


Valuations

We are pleased to provide professional written valuations for insurance (replacement cost) or probate (resale value) for individual pictures or entire collections. A fee is charged for this service and is based on the time taken to view the items and undertake research, if necessary. The fee is not based on the valuation provided.


Period Frames

It is important to select the right frame for a picture. We are pleased to advise on the most appropriate frame or mount and can often find the correct period frame to compliment a particular picture in your collection or to suit an interior. A fine period frame can often be acquired for similar expense to a modern frame, and is likely to increase in value. All materials used for mounting works on paper are conservation approved.
