Recent Auction Highlights

It’s been great to see so many people attend our auctions over recent weeks.

Prices have been buoyant with art, decorative items and furniture selling well.

We are constantly achieving a sale rate of over 90% which means each week we are auctioning a wide range of fresh stock from collections and estates.

Entries are now welcome for our next upcoming special auction Rock, Pop & Retro being held on 3rd June.
