Estates, Appraisals and Valuations Services
The Estates, Appraisals & Valuations Department can provide all the services needed to proactively or reactively manage collections, and manage the transition of such collections from generation to generation.  Our clients from across the EMEA region, whether private individuals, corporate or professional advisers, are responsible for the entire contents of numerous historic family homes, extensive corporate collections, or discrete collections assembled by connoisseurs. Estates, Appraisals & Valuations provides a single contact, the Account Manager, to guide clients through the valuation process and to offer them access to global specialist expertise of Christie's.


Christie's provides valuations of the highest standard, ranging from a few select works of art to large collections spanning multiple properties and art categories.

We are able to react swiftly to prospective sale valuations and can advise how best to offer the works for sale in order to achieve the highest returns, whilst guiding you throughout the sale process.

As well as auction estimates, Estates, Appraisals & Valuations offer wide range of services and are able to produce valuations for many other purposes, taking a client’s requirements into account.
