Duke's pleased to welcome Max Beaumont

With the ever growing demand for 20th Century Art & Design, Dukes are delighted to welcome Auctioneer and Valuer Max Beaumont to the team. Over the coming months he will be conducting several specialist valuation events and will be on hand to provide free valuations or advice, on single items or entire collections, with a view to selling at auction.
Over the last decade, the antique world has altered in what has become fashionable and collectable. There has been a dramatic change from collecting standard Victorian and Edwardian general household furniture to collectors and buyers looking to furnish their homes with mid-century modern to late 20th century furniture. A few of the collectable brands that buyers are keen to purchase include Ercol, Gordon Russell, Heals, Charles and Ray Eames, Merrow Associates, Ladderax and even early Ikea. 
Max Beaumont commented: “The market for 20th Century Art and Design is currently in high demand with collectors from all over the world seeking the rare and unusual. There are so many different periods of great design and styles from timeless Art Nouveau, iconic Art Deco to fresh Post Modern and streamlined Scandinavian design.”
Duke’s Auctioneers in Dorchester are organising many specialist valuation events over the next several months. The next free valuation event to be held at the Duke’s Fine Art Saleroom in Dorchester will be the 20th Century Art and Design, Moorcroft and Poole Pottery valuation day, 4th of August. Max Beaumont will be available between 10am-4pm to offer free and confidential valuations and advice. Appointments are not necessary, but if any further information is required, please contact Duke’s on 01305265080 or email: enquiries@dukes-auctions.com.
