Important Notice – 6th November 2020

Following the latest Government Guidance, our planned live online auctions for the rest of November have been postponed.

We are planning to hold the following sales in December:-

Friday 4th December – Antiques with Jewellery and Silver featuring a Private Collection of Samplers

Friday 11th December – Contents of a local Georgian Town House plus Wines, Spirits and Breweriana

Saturday 12th December – Clocks and Watches including a Private Collection of Pocket Watch Stands

Our sale programme for January 2021 will be announced in due course.

Since we reopened in June we have conducted all our auctions ‘live online’ with an auctioneer and we have been delighted with the response. We aim to continue with ‘live online’ auctions when we restart on the 4th December.

Thank you for your support and understanding during these difficult times and we look forward to welcoming you back when we reopen.
