Antiques and Art appraisal
collectables & household chattels
Most valuations are unique, and therefore so too should be our valuer services. We tailor our approach to meet your specific appraisal needs, focusing on making the exercise economical and straightforward.
Being based in Christchurch does not stop us from supporting our New Zealand customers.
Fine Antiques often travel to neighbouring areas such as Akaroa, Kaikoura, Ashburton, Timaru, Oamaru, and Dunedin. We also travel to outlying areas and North Island cities (Wellington and Auckland).
Travel comes with additional costs: flights, accommodation, rental cars etc. Where you can provide the cataloguing work yourself, we can provide a valuation based on emailed photographs and descriptions.
You may have the responsibility of managing deceased estate assets, or working through a matrimonial division. Both situations are difficult and often require equitable distribution or to maximise sales value.

Insurance requirements, financial needs, or personal interest may cause you to look for a third party to independantly catalogue and value your collection.

I would like to thank Fine Antiques for their professional manner, sound knowledge and attention to detail they went beyond the brief in valuing items even by searching overseas.
I feel the quality of the service I received was the best I have ever had from a valuer and I am very pleased to provide this recommendation. I would have no hesitation in using their services again in the future ...
Paul Jones and Fine Antiques helped us sell items from my father’s estate. It was a stressful time and Paul could not have been more considerate and highly professional in his assistance to us. I have no hesitation in emphatically recommending Paul and Fine Antiques for their top quality services. Big thanks.
Paul & Bridget changed my whole world. After a long period of battling my insurance company, I approached Fine Antiques and felt immediately relieved. The insurers agreed to use their services as an independant final decision. All I can say is, if you are having difficulty then ring Fine Antiques, you will not regret it.
I have engaged Fine Antiques - Antiques & Estate Valuers for valuing antique dinner sets, water sets and ornaments damaged by two of the Canterbury earthquake events. I have found their service helpful, convenient and prompt to use and this made the contents claims challenges easier to cope with. I am very pleased to recommend their specialist service.
I have used Fine Antiques on two occasions and both times have been impressed with the level of friendly professional service. A lot of effort and detail goes into providing an accurate estimate of items, even down to providing where they can source a replacement if possible. I would highly recommend using Fine Antiques if you are looking for a comprehensive accurate valuation.
