A NEW face will join Silverwoods’ team of antique experts at a free valuation event for the public at its auction house in Lincoln Way, Clitheroe.
Kurt von Rügemer (39) is a qualified fine arts valuer, with previous experience at James Thompson of Kirkby Lonsdale and Keith Dennis Associates in Wigan.
He joins local valuer Jacquie Fairburn, director Hill Speak and auctioneer Wilf Mould at the event, which takes place on Tuesday, November 8th, from 2 to 7 p.m. It will give local people the chance to take along antiques, including ceramics, pictures, silver, jewellery, furniture and collectables, for free no-obligation identification and valuation. There is a limit of five items per visitor. Kurt will join the team at Silverwoods every Monday, when the Clitheroe auction house is open for evaluations and for booking items in for the company’s popular weekly auctions and bi-monthly special sales.
The October special sale was filmed by TV’s “Dickinson’s Real Deal” antiques programme to feature in four of its forthcoming episodes, with Silverwoods acting as auctioneers for the programme and independent valuers at the programme’s “Dealer Day” in Colne a month before the auction.
