Gavin Strang, Managing Director of Lyon & Turnbull, heads up the Valuations department in Scotland. He is also a specialist in tapestries, rugs and carpets. After graduating with an M. Phil. in Decorative Arts from Glasgow University in 1996, followed by an internship with the Victoria & Albert Museum, Gavin started his auction career in Christie’s Furniture & Works of Art Department. He later became both a carpet specialist and a general valuer with the firm. Gavin joined the Lyon & Turnbull team as a general valuer in 2002, looking after valuations for sale, inheritance tax (probate), tax & estate planning and insurance purposes. Now Managing Director and senior auctioneer with an all-round knowledge of art and antiques, Gavin has been responsible for the orchestration and smooth running of a great number of Lyon & Turnbull’s very successful single owner collection sales. Gavin is on the committee of the Society of Fine Art Auctioneers and Valuers, a Fellow of the Society of Antiquaries of Scotland and regularly sits on the HMRC Chattels Fiscal Forum.
