Henrietta Graham has considerable knowledge of the antiques market built up over many years of high-level trading, working for some of the biggest names in the business. She spent 15 years as Bonham’s representative and general valuer in the North East and before that 12 years working for Sothebys. Henrietta now has her own fine art and antiques consultancy business based in Ripon, North Yorkshire.
Henrietta’s broad knowledge of antiques means that she can advise Elstob & Elstob clients on the sale of single items or take an overview of larger collections or house sales. During her career, she has been involved with a number of high profile sales, including the Nun Monkton House Sale, the Ripley Castle Collection and the Meade Irish Silver Collection.
Her particular expertise is knowing what, when and how best to sell, making her recommendations invaluable to potential sellers. Henrietta also carries out formal valuations for insurance, probate and family division.
With over 30 years’ experience in the auction world, Henrietta has a very good overall knowledge of antiques but her particular specialism is in 18th, 19th and 20th century paintings.
