SafeGuard and The Birmingham Assay Office are approved Service Providers to LAPADA – The Association Of Art & Antiques Dealers
The SafeGuard Independent Jewellery, Watch and Silverware Valuation Service is privileged to have several members of its experienced valuation team who are experts in their field and have a passion for antique jewellery, silverware, medals, coins and regalia.
Craig O’Donnell is one of SafeGuard’s expert team of valuers who specialises in Jewellery, Watches and Antique silver. He has a BA degree in Fine Arts Valuation. Craig is currently undertaking the valuation of the private silver collection belonging to The Birmingham Assay Office.
There are many antique pieces among the tens of thousands of articles valued by SafeGuard every year.
The team of valuers assess anything from cocktail and pocket watches, diamond rings, antique gold as well as silver candlesticks, tea sets, trophies and even Mayoral Chains. Valuing these items presents a very different challenge from those modern items which are immediately replaceable from the High Street.
The Silverware Valuation Service document is specifically designed for items of silverware and significant piece including regalia, badges of office and trophies.
