We start the year with the return of our Rediscovery sale, in its new guise. It is now a monthly sale and, due to the present lockdown, we had to conduct this first one on-line only; most bizarre with Wilf selling to a microphone and a computer terminal, still with his usual patter and repartee. It was a useful proving ground for our new in-house auction bidding platform, auctionmart.com which will provide an extra service for our customers. This chest made £170, suggesting an improvement in brown furniture that we also saw in the December sale and an Old Charm bar made £160.
Coming up this month we have the Architectural Salvage, Rural & Domestic Bygones sale, which already has over 100 lots and at the end of the month we have our first special sale of 2021, the Silver, Metalware & Jewellery sale on the 31st January. Entries for this sale are now closed, the catalogue will be published on the-saleroom.com on the 20th.
Looking forward to February we have the monthly Rediscovery and Architectural Salvage, Rural & Domestic Bygones sales and at the end of the month is the bimonthly Fine Art & Antiques sale.
We are still accepting entries for all of these sales.
Despite the lockdown, we remain open for business on a 'Click & Collect' basis in line with safe practice, make an appointment to drop items off or collection and, of course, we are hear to help with valuations; our valuers are available to speak with you on weekdays from 9:00-2:00 (01200 423322) or e-mail anytime.
