     Forthcoming Christmas Antique & Decorator’s Auction

    Saturday 10th December 2016, Further Entries Invited

    Last year’s Christmas auction was busy and prices buoyant.  Silver and Jewellery did consistently well with particular highlights included an unusual set of twelve sterling silver salts in the form of mussel shells which achieved £600, a diamond solitaire mounted on platinum achieving £1500 and a diamond and emerald bracelet in the Art Deco taste achieving £2300.



  • The Scottish Auction : 20th August 2016

    Our first Scottish Auction held on 20th August this year was a huge success.  One of the highlights included a pair of impressive circular gilt mirrors which achieved £13,000, other highlights a Victorian Edinburgh silver three piece teaset, by James Mackay, 1843 which achieved £700.  A large Christ mounted on a grain painted cross from and Edinburgh church realised £2000 and a bedroom suite by Shapland  & Petter in the Glasgow style realised £1050.  We aim to make this sale an important event in our annual sales calendar, it certainly seems to appeal to both native Scots and an international market.  Entries are therefore invited for our next sale.1
