What is that old lamp in the loft worth? Who is the designer? What about the familie's silverware, or the inherited Picasso? Is it even real? And if so, what is it worth?

Whether they intend to sell their objects or not, it's always good to get things valued. Not least for insurance purposes, if a special piece was stolen or damaged it is important to know its value. Some items can even increase in value over a period of time.

At Barnebys, we have launched a valuation blog in which we will be offering fantastic stories about the objects you never knew existed which have sold for exceptional amounts, as well as expert opinions on the items sent in to Barnebys valuation service.
