Hi There~

My name is Nora, and I am here to help with your question.

Paintings by the British artist George Augustus Williams (1814-1901) tend to sell in the 1000GBP – 1500GBP range at auction on today’s market. The sale price is due to the slump in the global economy, and not because of a loss of interest in this. The insurance, or replacement value is 3000GBP.

If interested in selling your painting, the best route would be through auction.

Here is a list of auction houses in the UK who have handled works by GA Williams:

Christie's London, South Kensington: www.christies.com

Waddington's: www.waddingtons.ca

John Nicholson: www.johnnicholsons.com/

Kidson Trigg: www.kidsontrigg.co.uk/

Dreweatt Neate, Newbury (Donnington): www.dnfa.com

Bonhams Knightsbridge: www.bonhams.com

It is free to contact auction houses and get an estimate for sale. You can contact each auction house through their website. You will send them photos and information. You would not be obligated to sell with any of them. Please bear in mind that estimates will vary from each business, and that the highest estimate is not necessarily a guarantee of a sale.

Contact all of them, if possible for you, regardless of the company location. This will also help you get a consensus opinion on the value and estimates. Approach each one as if you are interested in selling through them. Auction houses take a percentage of the final sale price, so it is in their best interest to sell it for a premium bid.

Feel free if you have further questions about your painting by GA Williams.

Please only leave feedback when you feel satisfied your question has been answered.

Our conversation will continue as long as you please, even after a rating is left.

Sincerely,
Nora
