A set of six George III silver plates
Looking for a 'Silver Service' when you are selling?
Exceeding expectation from the antique with makers such as Paul Storr or Nathaniel Mills or exciting the market with 20th century icons like Gerald Benney or Omar Ramsden, Golding Young has the hallmark of a professional auction house.
Identifying classical styles, naming and dating pieces, providing good photography and utilising research tools are all part of the service in selling silver from all periods.
It is not only English silver where we excel, with recent outstanding results on a large collection of Danish white metal lead by the great Georg Jensen with £1,500 paid for a pierced bowl and a rare Dutch provincial dish went under the hammer for £10,200 despite mass debate over its condition.
Even the very lowest value lots create competition at auction. There is always that probability that damaged items still can be recycled and have a value over and above 'scrap' pricing.
If you do not offer it to the auction market you will never know what you have lost at someone else's profit.
