We were delighted to welcome Richard Edwards to the Ramsay Cornish valuations team in November. Originally from the West coast of Scotland, Richard first qualified as a solicitor before going on to build a career in auctioneering. He joined Sotheby’s New York in 1993 as a specialist in the European Works of Art Dept, before moving to Doyle New York as a General Valuer and Appraiser. Returning to the UK in 2003, he has headed up a provincial saleroom in Yorkshire. We are sure you will find Richard highly knowledgeable with a charming and friendly approach.
