Valuations of Personal Collections of Original Art, Antique Prints and Limited Edition Art Prints for Insurance Purposes or for Resell or Purchase Values.
PLEASE DO NOT CALL FOR A VALUATION - USE THE EMAIL ADDRESS BELOW
Cranston Fine Arts The Military Print Company has, over the years, been inundated with requests for valuations of personal items for various reasons including:
We have had to bring in a small charge for this service to cover our employees time, experience and effort.
A set charge of £20 will be levied for valuation per item, plus information on the item which can be gathered. The valuation we give would be the true value of the item which we would advertise for sale in our commercial premises. If the condition of the item is not clear the value will be given within a certain range. If there are several items, the third item onwards would be charged at £15 each.
Cranston Fine Arts offer a best price valuation which cannot be guaranteed. We cannot be held responsible for a lesser value being obtained for the item when sold to another party.
The information gathered on the item will be supplied but is not guaranteed. Many items will have no previous commercial record for example being sold by the 24 major military and historical commercial art auction houses, established print sellers and publishers, and museum collections which we are in contact with on a regular basis. The artists may not have specialized in military subjects and therefore may not be recorded as such.
In the rare event that we are unable to find sufficient information to make a valuation of your item(s), we will refund your payment for the item(s). If we make a valuation, the fee is non-refundable.
To request a valuation of an item, send an email to cranstonorders @ outlook.com
In your email, please provide details of artist, title, condition, edition, age etc where possible / applicable.
