Criterion have an unrivalled track record in handling claims for fine art, antiques and jewellery. We have specialist adjusters including Chris Monks, Sean Ball and Simon Gearing who all have vast experience of dealing with losses of this type throughout the UK, Europe and beyond.
In addition to traditional loss adjusting, Criterion also provide the following services:
Valuation & Appraisal
We are able to provide a menu of services including pre and post loss appraisals and valuations for our clients. This facility includes modern collectibles, jewellery, antiques, fine art and all objects d’art. We provide desktop valuations where a full adjusting service is not required via our on-line valuation services which include access to auction house and other sales room records.
The recovery of stolen art and antiques comprises a Criterion specialism and we have achieved many notable successes over the years returning stolen property to the original owners or to insurers. This frequently requires the assistance of outside agencies and we maintain excellent relationships with all of the law enforcement and art recovery services throughout the world.
Fine Art & Antiques Salvage
Our close relationships with all of the leading auction houses and regional specialists enable us to arrange the sale of many items that may otherwise simply be disposed of thereby reducing our clients’ indemnity spend. We believe this is an area frequently overlooked by some adjusters but one where significant returns can be achieved.
