Riddetts Of Bournemouth And Ewbanks
New Office Opened In Bournemouth
Long-established Bournemouth fine art and antiques auctioneers Riddetts in association with Surrey auctioneers Ewbank Clarke Gammon Wellers have opened a new town centre office to better serve clients requiring valuations for insurance and probate purposes or with a view to selling at auction.
Riddetts resident valuations specialist Stephen Ozier, who has worked for the firm for 34 years, will in future be based at Canford Chambers, 22 St Peter’s Road, and enquiries and appointments for home visits should be made to him on 01202 555686 or 07811 665055 (mobile). He will also be available by appointment at Canford Chambers to give free saleroom valuations.
Riddetts formed a strategic alliance with Ewbank Clarke Gammon Wellers in February. Property consigned for sale by Riddetts clients will be entered into either the fortnightly Victorian and later sales or one of the four important auctions of antiques and fine art held at Ewbank Clarke Gammon Wellers’ Burnt Common saleroom at Send, near Guildford. The saleroom offers international access for buyers through Internet bidding based on the auctioneer’s website at www.ewbankauctions.co.uk.
Said Mr Ozier: “In view of the recent return to strength of the art market, now might be a good time to consider both reviewing the level of cover for art and antiques on home insurance policies and perhaps learning more about the value of that silver or jewellery lying neglected in a cupboard drawer or bank vault. In either case it pays to know current market values and I and my colleagues at Ewbank Clarke Gammon Wellers would be happy to help.”
