Feeding the Horses

The Kelpies. Scottish Contemporary Sculpture

It's a question of Marmite….Love or Hate Public Art?

I personally love the extraordinary Kelpies by Andy Scott. Endlessly patient to the waiting hoards beneath. Brazenly demanding and with a terrifying hidden mythological story to tell. Be wary traveller if you find enticing steeds to ride by mist laden Scottish loch-sides!

By Royal Appointment

Scottish Wildlife

A meeting with the locals is always a pleasure.

Our valuers travel extensively in Scotland, in all weathers. It's always a pleasure to discover new lochs and glens…and meet with the wildlife.

Rare Chinese vase raises the bar!

Qianlong Chinese Imperial Dragon Vase

Discovered amongst a collection of spirit bottles, and stuffed with dried flowers, this extraordinary Imperial vase was hammered down at the Sotheby's Important Chinese sale, on behalf of a Covington client, for a cloud touching £1.1 million pounds.

With it's luminous cobalt blue decoration of a five clawed dragon chasing a flaming pearl and its clean and elegant body shape ensured enormous interest on the day. It was a lucky survival found hiding by our valuer on a routine free antiques valuation home visit. Do you perhaps have the pair?
