Christchurch Antiques Dealers

Are you looking for honest and independent valuation experts? People who can provide your cataloguing and valuation needs.

Originally based in central Christchurch, Fine Antiques was forced to move from New Regents street offices and now operate from the Christchurch suburb of Harewood.

Fine Antiques has over 25 years experience in the New Zealand and International antiques industry. Cataloguing and valuing objects is our core business, ranging from appraising run-of-the-mill everyday household items through to valuing rare and unusual investment antiques.


Other New Zealand valuers provide their services as side-line activities to their antique shop or auction house. The values they provide are often based on their own sales experience, not undergoing research to understand prices other venues may achieve or ask.

We do not go by our experience alone, research allows us to realise true value making sure you will be are able to replace your items. Fine Antiques have large research resources and investigate many options to ensure values we assign are accurately.


No job is 'to small' or 'to out of the way' - staff are happy to travel up and down New Zealand. If you are off the beaten track then that is fine, just give us a call to discus travel costs.



Like most auction houses and antiques dealers, Fine Antiques had always offered valuation services to their clients. With the huge demand for contents valuations generated by the Canterbury Earthquakes, we made a decision to specialise and now provide large numbers of independent valuations of antiques, household contents, and collections.

The majority of our valuation reporting has been based around insurance claims and cataloguing, however we have had numerous times where we have provided services for matrimonial division, business division, liquidators and large collections such as the Ferrymead Heritage Parks Gramophone Collection and the Pharmaceutical Society of New Zealand Christchurch Collection.



Some of the most difficult times in ones life is being confronted with love ones passing away, or the chaos and disorder of matrimonial separation. Discretion, caring and respect for privacy are all things important to us. Consultants can visit homes or storage units, talk about value and provide multiple options to liquidate. Specifically, Fine Antiques can manage the entire process from appraisal, transportation and sale of the estate through multiple independent avenues maximising return.
