VMS founder Patrick Van der Vorst explains how it all began

Often the art market can be perceived as not being very approachable, or the process of trying to get your item valued can be quite time consuming and complex. All of our antique experts have worked for Sotheby's, Christie's or other leading auction houses, and now offer their knowledge, covering over 50 collecting fields, in order to make the art valuing and appraisal process as straightforward and accessible as possible for you.
