Halls offers free online valuations of antique and fine art items, including jewellery, watches, paintings, and collectibles. Our experienced valuers can provide an initial estimate of an item's value based on a simple description and photographs.
However, it's important to note that a physical examination is the most reliable way to assess the value of an artwork, as hidden damage or repairs may not be visible in photographs.
Important note: Due to the volume of enquiries we receive, we are regrettably unable to respond to requests from outside Europe and the UK. If you are in the USA, Canada, Australia or New Zealand, please seek advice from an auction gallery in your area.
The Halls online valuation service is an excellent starting point to obtain an initial estimate of your artwork's value.
Simple instructions for using Halls online fine art valuation service:
Take clear photos of your artwork. Make sure the photos are well-lit and show the entire artwork, including any signatures, labels, or other identifying features.
Collect any information you have about the artwork. This could include the artist's or designer's name, the title of the work, the medium (oil, watercolor, etc.), the date it was created, and any history or provenance you have.
Submit your information and photos through the online valuation form and wait for the valuation to be completed.
Review the valuation report which will provide an estimated value for your artwork, as well as any additional information or insights about the artwork's history, condition, or market trends.
Consider your options. If you're interested in selling your artwork, the valuation report can help you determine a fair price. If you're just curious about the value, you can use the report to better understand the artwork's significance and worth.
Remember, while online valuations can provide a helpful starting point for determining the value of your artwork, they are not a substitute for a physical appraisal by a qualified expert. For high-value items, it's always a good idea to have the artwork professionally appraised in person.
