About Auction Valuation Day
Free Maritime & Scientific Art, Instrument, Model and Artefact Auction valuations for Edinburgh residents.
London-based Maritime & Scientific Specialist Charles Miller is inviting people in Edinburgh to come along to the Edinburgh Radisson Blu with any scientific instruments and maritime memorabilia for a free auction valuation and to find out more about them and possibly include them in one of their international sale catalogues.
In Antiques Roadshow-tradition, individuals can come along with items of interest and discuss their significance – historic or commercial - with Charles.
Recent valuation days in other parts of the UK have recently unearthed items including a pocket globe that sold for £7,688, a U-boat bell (£13,640) and a Napoleonic Prisoner of War model which went for £8,680.
Charles says: “The categories are represented across all fields of art and culture and fine art is as welcome as ship models and navigational or scientific instruments, or artefacts connected in some way to the subject or interesting people.”
Other examples of objects to bring in include, globes, sundials and compasses, as well as items of historical significance relating to battles, ships and interesting personnel.
