Campbeltown Courier - - NEWS -

Two of tele­vi­sion’s favourite an­tiques deal­ers will be re­turn­ing to Ar­gyll in Septem­ber and will be pay­ing top prices for an­tiques, gold and sil­ver.

Si­mon Sch­nei­der and Tim Hog­a­rth reg­u­larly ap­pear on tele­vi­sion and are highly trusted and re­spected for their knowl­edge and ex­per­tise. The an­tiques ex­perts are re­turn­ing due to pop­u­lar de­mand and will be ap­pear­ing at The Stag Ho­tel in Lochgilp­head on Wed­nes­day 6 Septem­ber 2017, The An­chor Ho­tel in Tar­bert on Thurs­day 7 Septem­ber 2017, at The Ar­gyll Arms Ho­tel in Camp­bel­town on Fri­day 8 Septem­ber 2017 and The Re­gent Ho­tel in Oban on Satur­day 9 Septem­ber 2017.

The deal­ers are invit­ing both new and for­mer clients to come along to meet them and cash in on their un­wanted an­tiques and for­got­ten trea­sures.

Tim Hog­a­rth said: “Si­mon and I had a great re­sponse last time we vis­ited Scot­land and have hun­dreds of sat­is­fied cus­tomers. We are de­lighted to be re­turn­ing to Ar­gyll and we hope peo­ple will reach their cup­boards and bring along some un­usual and in­ter­est­ing items.”

Si­mon Sch­nei­der added: “The an­tiques busi­ness is very strong at the mo­ment and we will pay top cash prices for gold, sil­ver and qual­ity items sim­i­lar to those il­lus­trated.”

Tim and Si­mon deal ex­ten­sively in gen­eral an­tiques and cover all as­pects of the an­tiques busi­ness and guar­an­tee to of­fer the high­est prices for those items they wish to pur­chase.

Tim Hog­a­rth is greatly re­spected for his ex­per­tise and ex­pe­ri­ence ap­prais­ing and deal­ing in di­a­mond jew­ellery and vin­tage watches and medals.

Tim Hog­a­rth com­mented: “Di­a­mond jew­ellery is very much in de­mand as are pe­riod pieces from the 1930s to 1950s and I have strong cus­tomers waiting for good ex­am­ples, re­gard­less of con­di­tion.

I am also keen to pur­chase vin­tage wrist watches, the big names, Rolex, Cartier and Omega, are all selling well and this is a great time to cash in on these and sim­i­lar items.”

“The mar­ket for medals con­tin­ues to be very good at the mo­ment and some ex­am­ples, es­pe­cially from the First World War, are mak­ing higher prices than ever.”

Si­mon Sch­nei­der is highly trusted and widely ac­knowl­edged as an ex­pert in 20th Cen­tury dec­o­ra­tive an­tiques and also deals ex­ten­sively in an­tique sil­ver.

Si­mon Sch­nei­der said: “Tim and I are both keen to spend, spend, spend! The mar­ket for gold and sil­ver is still very strong and we will be of­fer­ing top prices for items even if bro­ken. Where Tim loves his di­a­monds, watches and medals, I am very keen to buy qual­ity ex­am­ples from the Art Nou­veau and Art Deco pe­ri­ods as well as fine pe­riod sil­ver. The de­mand for sil­ver tea sets, trays, tro­phies snuff boxes and sim­i­lar items is very strong, par­tic­u­larly for the larger ex­am­ples.”

“I also have strong de­mand for good qual­ity ceram­ics. Royal Worces­ter, Moor­croft, Shel­ley and Clarice Cliff are all selling well and the in­ter­est in Chi­nese and ori­en­tal an­tiques is huge.”

The deal­ers are look­ing for­ward to meet­ing as many peo­ple as pos­si­ble and will be pay­ing top cash prices. As Si­mon said: “Be­tween us, Tim and I cover most as­pects of the an­tiques busi­ness and we hope to find some good qual­ity ex­am­ples of all the items we have men­tioned.”

Tim and Si­mon guar­an­tee no queues and no ap­point­ments are nec­es­sary how­ever the deal­ers are happy to do a home visit if any­one is un­able to come along dur­ing the day or has some­thing too large to bring in.
