Come and visit our smart saleroom for a free valuation, talk to our experts, ask advice, and share our passion for preserving and collecting beautiful objects. We sell all types of art, antiques, contemporary, collectables, jewellery and watches.
I am also the current president of NAVA PropertyMark - The National Association of Valuers and Auctioneers: a self-regulating professional body which promotes and defends industry best practise and gives consumers protection within all facets of the auctioneering and valuation world. We offer an un-matched programme of enrichment through education (technical award qualifications and short courses) as well as annual events to include the renowned annual conference and NAVA Novice Auctioneer of the year Competition.
We are currently developing an exciting programme of CPD events for members and non-members – handling sessions where delegates are lead through specialist fields with renowned industry figures. The first of which is a handling session with ceramics hosted by Jeremy Lamond and Halls auctioneers - read more here: http://www.nava.org.uk/events/handling-events/
I am also very proud to be a former Chairman of the AYG committee and remain part of the committee which aims to support and champion new talent in the wider antiques market place.
I’m always really happy to hear from fellow AYG’s, NAVA members and anyone interested in this wonderful world of ours – so please get in touch!
