Once a client has decided what they are looking for, we endeavour to meet specifications using our extensive contacts within all tiers of the art fraternity.
Viewing & vetting
When a potential acquisition has been identified, we can personally inspect and assess the piece, reporting on every aspect of artistic and commercial interest.
We advise on bidding strategies and offer representation when bidding at auction.
If a client has a work to sell, we can provide strategic advice and manage the entire sales process in order to achieve the most advantageous return.
CONSERVATION & RESTORATION
Recognising the importance of preserving the life of an acquisition, we work alongside leading art, antiques and classic car conservators, managing complex projects and liaising between client and conservator.
SHIPPING & carriage
From moving fragile porcelain a matter of miles to transporting entire containers overseas, we can arrange and oversee all shipping requirements.
We work closely with a small group professional art handlers, picture hangers and lighting specialists to ensure our clients' art works are displayed to their best advantage and in appropriate conditions.
Corfield Morris provide detailed, objective, fully researched and illustrated valuations for a number of specific purposes including insurance, tax planning, family division and charitable contributions.
Art collections represent a significant asset and require protection, documentation, valuation and management to ensure their value is maximised and protected for the future. We offer a bespoke collection management and curatorial service.
LEGAL ADVISORY & EXPERT WITNESS
Corfield Morris can provide expert reports on antiques, fine art and jewellery for litigation purposes, and expert witness reports for Civil and Criminal Court cases.
