MENZIES ART APPRAISALS
If you are considering selling an artwork, our expert consultants can provide a free initial estimate of its value.
We provide appraisals online, at our offices, at your premises, or even via mail.
We can reliably appraise Australian and international works of art, across all media.
However, please note that Menzies is a secondary market for art, so we cannot value new work by artists currently working and/or exhibiting.
Menzies offers a prompt and wide range of specialist valuation services to private collectors, corporations, government organisations, executors and financial advisors. Valuations can be for insurance, market appraisal, probate, family division, the Cultural Gifts Program or leasing.
All valuations are undertaken on a strictly confidential basis and include accurate descriptions and the option of accompanying digital photographic records.
Quotations for valuation services are available on enquiry to our office. We charge a reduced fee for updating existing Menzies’ valuations so you can always keep your insurance valuations current. Fees for market appraisals will be rebated if you consign your property for sale with us.
Timothy Abdallah, our National Head of Art, is an approved valuer under the Commonwealth Government Cultural Gifts Program.
Every Wednesday between 2pm and 5pm, our art specialists conduct obligation-free appraisals in our Melbourne and Sydney offices.
If Wednesday afternoon is not convenient, please call our office to make an individual appointment. Alternatively, you can either post a photo to us (or submit one online) - with a description that clearly indicates the artwork’s dimensions, artist's signature, medium, physical condition and any other relevant information. Please send copies as photographs cannot be returned.
Our specialists are also available to visit you. Visits are generally at no cost however a fee may be charged based on the scope and diversity of your collection. Any fees charged will be rebated if your work of art is consigned for sale with Menzies.
Prior to each auction, our specialists visit Perth, Adelaide, Canberra and Brisbane to provide free appraisals to clients. Times for these visits are advertised here on this website, and in the local press.
Clients on our mailing list are notified in advance of visits by brochure and/or email as preferred. To make an appointment, please contact us on 02 8344 5404 (Sydney) or 03 9832 8700 (Melbourne).
