Sophie Chapman - Senior Valuer and Jewellery Specialist RSA Dip BA Hons


Our Senior Valuer and Jewellery Specialist, Sophie has a broad knowledge in all collecting fields, having worked in auction houses for almost twenty years, having trained at Christies, she has worked at Phillips and then Bonhams as well as with the V and A and the Wallace Collection, before coming here to Stamford. She has developed an extensive specialist knowledge in jewellery and silver particularly, as well as textiles, lace and vintage / antique clothing, ballistic weaponry and armour, and the rarely seen antiquities, and tribal art.  As such she will be a great asset to Stamford Auction Rooms expanding jewellery and silver department.

A great interest of Sophie's lies in equine, canine and marine art, developing from a knowledge being built over many years and including experience gained at Langfords Marine Antiques.

Sophie's ability to thoroughly research is of great importance to SAR, and enables us to produce first class catalogues….in fact, she relishes the challenge of an item coming through the doors that we have never come across before, and finding out its history and true worth.

Her enthusiasm for everything antique & collectable is always apparent, and infectious!! So, whatever you would like to have valued, she would be delighted to hear from you! Perhaps she will even encourage you to start collecting as well!
