Ever wondered the value of that old vintage airgun at the back of your safe? Or have you recently bequeathed some ancient-looking shooting-related antique that’s now just collecting dust? If so, bring your items of interest along to a free valuation day in August to receive expert appraisal by Holt’s, the world’s leading auctioneer of fine modern and antique guns.
The Antiques Roadshow-style valuation days are informal and informative, and are primarily intended as points of consignment to the next sale. Holt’s is also able to carry out valuations for the sake of interest, together with insurance and probate requirements (a charge may be made for the last two services if required in writing).
Senior Valuer Roland Elworthy commented: “We are always keen to hear of family or related provenance; it is often of interest and can have a highly beneficial impact on the value. We will then suggest a realistic catalogue estimate and reserve (if you are minded to sell) together with a likely hammer price.”
Appointments are available between 10am and 5pm. To book, call: 01485 542822.
Wednesday 6 August, The Ivy Bush Royal Hotel,Carmarthenshire, SA31 1LG
Thursday 7 August, Halls of Shrewsbury,Shrewsbury, Shropshire, SY4 3DR
The next sale is Thursday 18 September.
