Avery Associates regularly carry out probate valuation in Surrey>, but it was during a probate valuation of chattels in Holland Road, Surrey RH8 9BQ that the interesting reproduction penny farthing bicycle was listed. We also carry out probate valuation and house clearance in Surrey areas Ockley, Ottershaw, Oxshott, Peper Harow, Pirbright, Puttenham and Pyrford but it was during the probate valuation of house contents in Oxted RH9 that we noted the Penny Farthing bycycle.
By 1870, metalworking had improved to the point that bicycles began to be constructed entirely of metal, an improvement in both performance and material strength, and bike design began to change accordingly. The pedals were still attached directly to the front wheel but solid rubber tires and long spokes on a much large front wheel provided a greatly improved ride. Also, the bigger the wheels, the faster you could go, and the Penny Farthing as they were called enjoyed a great popularity in the Europe and the United States in the 1870s and 1880s.
Our valuers always carry out extensive research, so by having our RICS probate valuation we will ensure that the chattels are not under or overvalued.
