Based in London, Hornsby and Nugée specialise in ancient Greek, Roman, Egyptian, Near Eastern and European art from roughly 5000 BC to 1200 AD. With over 60 years’ experience between them, Hornsby and Nugée work as independent consultants after respective careers at Christie’s as director and head of antiquities.
The team covers all components of advisory, sales and negotiations, handling artefacts both privately and at auction. Valuation, insurance, family division and taxation are also covered, with discretion and independence valued above all.
‘We are well-known in the world of antiquities. Our work is through personal recommendations based on our professional reputation and knowledge,’ says Hornsby.
