Musical Instrument Valuations

Our experienced team of consultants have specialised knowledge in the field of musical instruments especially violins and cellos. We can provide accurate valuations and advise on the best avenue to sale, helping you achieve the highest price.

Musical instruments from string, wind and percussion through to pianos from all periods can fetch a large sum at auction if valued correctly.

Musical Instrument Evaluations

Musical instrument valuations provided for sale and probate purposes. We specialise in antique violins and cellos.

With instruments requiring much care, detail and a technical eye, a thorough assessment of the instrument will be made with professional expertise. The team can then provide advice on whether the instrument would benefit from restoration to raise its potential value or if it could achieve a good price as it is.

At Nicholas Muston we can handle everything on your behalf from the identification and valuation of your musical instrument, to the eventual sale. Musical instruments are usually sold through private sales or auctions, so it is important to obtain a valuation from an independent firm before you sell.

If you are looking to sell a musical instrument, please get in touch for an expert valuation from a RICS accredited valuer.

    I discovered this pair of Castellani bracelets on a routine probate valuation in Hove, amongst a group of costume jewellery. The family had no idea what they were or where they had come from.
Fortunately I knew exactly what they were and entered them into a Bonhams auction where they sold today for £30,000 plus buyer’s premium.
Made circa 1865 in a Byzantine style they are set with sugarloaf and cabochon sapphires and each is marked on the reverse with the interlocking CC mark.

    Another Louis Vuitton trunk sold on behalf of a client to a private collector. This time a wardrobe trunk complete with drawers and hanging rail. A few condition issues but it is going to be sent to France for a first class sympathetic restoration. No more than it deserves.

    Alfred Daniels, 1966. London street view near Charing Cross; oil on canvas; signed and dated; 70cm x 90cm.
A great looking painting in lovely original condition that I saw on a probate valuation this afternoon.
Daniel’s was once described as a “Lowry for Londoners”. Born in Bow in the east end of London he studied at the Royal College of Art. In the 1960s he taught at Hornsey College of Art.

    I always enjoy walking in London because you never know what architectural gems are just around the next corner. This is the Royal Arcade in Albermarle Street which was built in 1879 and is opposite Brown’s the oldest hotel in London.
