David Ford

(Senior Insurance Valuer)

David has been involved in the antiques business since the mid '60s, at one stage owning seven shops. For the past 20 years he has specialised in antique and art valuations for probate, insurance and division. Over the last seven years, he has featured as one of the original dealers in ITV's 'Dickinson's Real Deal' and has also become one of the featured presenters/dealers on ITV's 'Secret Dealers'. The highlight of David’s 15 years with John Nicholson's as a Senior Valuer was his discovery of two paintings - valued for insurance at £12,000 - which Nicholson’s went on to sell for the record sum of £750,000.
