Valuations and Identifications

We regret that we are unable to offer a valuation or identification service. Some larger museums, such as the British Museum (pdf), offer an identification service by appointment in individual departments. However, please note that museums are bound by a strict Code of Ethics and you may be required to demonstrate appropriate collection history until at least 1970 and appropriate export documentation.
