HVMC: valuations of items, a crucial step
Owners curious to know the value of their collections took their items to the "Hôtel des Ventes de Monte-Carlo" (HVMC) auction room, which offers free valuation days on a regular basis. Valuations are made by drawing on various areas of expertise and taking many different criteria into account. Once a valuation report has been made, the items are then entered into specialised auctions, held throughout the year. On 23 February, the "Hôtel des Ventes de Monte-Carlo" will empty its warehouses.
