Good auction house with friendly service. Just be sure you know what you're doing with any auction however and be aware of term & conditions as well as commission rates. This auction house is very competitive on commission rates so worthwhile to use.

Having never ventured into this sales area before, I was a little apprehensive as to how complicated it was likely to be. All members of staff were extremely helpful, friendly and knowledgeable and despite the restrictions imposed due to Covid, everything was handled by them with (thankfully!) very little input from me. Very pleased with the outcome and I wouldn't hesitate to contact them again if the need ever arose.

Was so please with the service the staff provided. Items in the sale was jewellery which far exceeded my expectations on hammer price. Will have no hesitation in using them again and would highly recommend them to my friends.
