Colin Fraser, a specialist in Scottish Silver, Coins & Medals and related items has been involved in the art and antiques world from a young age. Beginning as a collector this quickly moved to dealing (to fund an ever expanding coin collection) and has led to many interesting avenues within this varied business.

From coins and medals he navigated to the expanding market of Scottish silver. Through continued close working relationships with collectors, museums and research on the subject he has become an internationally recognised authority regularly advising museums and collectors on acquisitions and cataloguing he has worked on many important projects over the last 10 years. Culminating in various recent exhibitions and publications, including Aberdeen Art Gallery & Museums Silver the Aberdeen Story and the National Museums of Scotland Silver: Made in Scotland.

Until recently, having worked within the auction trade running two successful departments, he has experience in dealing with clients needs through the sale process. As a trained auctioneer Colin enjoys seeing the process of working with a client on items for sale from initial contact and consignment through to selling the pieces on the day.

Colin has recently become a consultant on Scottish Silver advising auction houses, museums and private collectors and enjoys working with the team at DNW.
