Biography

 

Kerstin Schaeffer is a Junior Specialist within the Fine Furniture, Works of Art and Antiquities departments. After obtaining a BA in Art History and Classical Archeology, Kerstin went on to work for a renowned museum in Germany, joining the Lyon & Turnbull team at the beginning of 2018. She supports in all auction elements including cataloguing, valuation requests and condition reporting, and acts as the first point of contact for any relevant enquiries in Edinburgh.

Kerstin is particularly fascinated with the history of objects and their meaning in the everyday lives of people in the past. Her personal highlight was being involved in the research of a French Gothic Ivory Casket crafted around 1330, which sold at auction in 2021 for £1,455,000 (price inclusive of Buyer's Premium). Contact Kerstin for any Fine Furniture, Works or Art or Antiquities valuation requests.
