Madrid: our highest ever valuation

8th July 2014

As an auctioneer you are often asked, 'What is the highest priced lot you have ever sold?'

Likewise, as a valuer you are asked, 'What was the highest valuation you have ever done?'

As well as claiming the highest hammer price for a work of art, Colin Young has now claimed the firm's record for the highest ever valuation.

The figure 41 may not seem that impressive, but for someone who hates heights, appraising items on the 41st floor of a sky-scraper is something of a personal achievement.

As well as valuation work around the city, the days in Madrid did give Colin the opportunity to visit the collections in the Museo del Prado and to make this short video during his visit - feet firmly on the ground!
