Stories from Amati Valuation Days

A client recently achieved a superb result with a violin in an Amati Affordable Auction. He had inherited the violin from a dear family friend with whom his father used to play music. The violin had great sentimental value and, as it turned out, significant financial value. After some feverish bidding, the violin eventually sold for a hammer price of £37,500.

The client was delighted. “I am amazed and, naturally, very pleased” were his words.
