Fine furniture is at the heart of what we do and our specialist team has the advantage of over 100 years combined experience in this field. Coupled with state-of-the-art facilities and a curatorial approach to cataloguing, it becomes clear why Duke’s is going against the trend and continuing to deliver strong prices in the “brown” furniture market. We see value in Georgian and Victorian craftsmanship as well as accompanying decorative pieces of the period.
Currently there is a strong appetite for high quality furniture with good colour and originality. Similarly, sculpture from early religious statuary in wood, through sumptuous classical and grand tour marble, to the celebrated bronzes of the 20th century is a key area of interest. By their nature these objects are difficult to move, and our team is on-hand to value items in situ at your convenience.
