Antiques Purchased

I am interested in buying Quality Antique, Victorian and Mid-20th Century design items. I am always looking for interesting and unusual pieces.

It may be that you have a single item to value or estate contents to sell on behalf of a relative. You might be thinking of changing an interior. Maybe you’re moving home or you want to use the space in an old cupboard or your loft.

I offer a free, professional & confidential service

Whether you have a single item or a full estate contents to sell please telephone me. Items I am interested in buying include: 

Please telephone the Office 0141 644 2020 or Mobile 07976 417101 for free advice.

You can also email me on lovattantiques@btconnect.com

You may have a Single Item you want valued. You may have a Complete House Contents for sale.

After initial contact we can arrange an appointment to call to your home and view your item(s). I will provide you with a written offer.

My valuation is free of charge and there is no obligation on your part to sell to me. You can accept or decline any part of my offer.

Should you decide to accept any part of the offer we will arrange a mutually convenient collection day.

Full payment is made upon collection.

The price I offer is the price I pay.

Unlike auction houses I will provide you with a firm offer to purchase. 

Auction houses can only estimate a value which MAY be achieved in their saleroom. An auction house valuation is not a guaranteed sale amount. Should your item sell the auctioneer will charge you, the seller 15% – 25% vendor’s commission. (Plus vat) The auction house will also charge the successful buyer 20% – 25% buyer’s premium plus vat. 

Your item will lose up to 50% (plus vat) of its value in auction house fees and associated charges. This does not include any additional charges for advertising, cataloguing & photography, insurance or carriage.
