Members of the public will have the option, if they wish, to consign their goods to auction subject to terms and conditions. Cash purchase offers are also available. Valuations will be provided free of charge, with no obligation. High quality illustrated catalogues from previous auctions will be given away on a complimentary basis in order for the public to get a better idea of the services available.


We recently broke the British record for a Rolex Submariner watch sold at auction. On 11th October 2017, we sold an example made c.1964 with orange numerals for almost £280,000 including premium. This achievement was reported in the national media. The owner consigned the watch to auction at one of our valuation events in the east of England. Many other star items have turned up at our events.


We currently also hold the World Record for a Women’s Social and Political Union (Suffragette) Hunger Strike medal sold at auction, being that of Mary Aldham (aka Mary Wood) who slashed the portrait of Henry James at the Royal Academy Exhibition in 1914 and caused a riot. We sold her medal and various personal effects on behalf of the owner for £23,450 including premium.


These examples are some of the most exceptional we have ever dealt with, but we are more than happy to offer advice on collectables at any level, they don’t have to be worth a fortune.
