August 2017 ‘A View From The Rostrum’

August saw a wide and varied selection of lots in our sale including everything from Original Boxed Corgi Toys via wine to our usual wide range of silver and jewellery. A good natured and busy room and an ever increasing busy internet competed for many of the lots with several stars being amongst the toys. We are delighted that over the last few years we have managed to welcome such a wide variety of people to Windsor Auctions, all of whom have joined in with our fun loving and professional attitude and many who now contribute in their own way in making our Auctions an enjoyable event for all who visit or listen online. International buyers also made a great impact this month with items being shipped around the world.   We were delighted to be representing a wide number of new clients by bringing their collections to market whether it be wine cellars, clocks or a new selection of garden stoneware, all of which sold well. If you have a collection that you are looking to sell please get in touch and we will discuss what we can do for you, this includes everything from a one off sale for just your items or inclusion within one of our monthly antique and collectable sales. Either email us in the first instance on sales@windsorauctions.co.uk or give us a call on 01753...

July 2017 ‘A View From The Rostrum’

Saturday’s Auction was a success on two levels, great prices were achieved for our many clients for a wide variety of lots and we welcomed the team from Celebrity Antiques Road Trip. Experts Philip Serrell and James Braxton had guided their celebrity charges, John Sergeant and Peter White through purchasing a wide range of items that drew a range of reactions from our Auctioneers Harry and Simon, from praise to surprise and you will have to wait until February to see what happened and who was right or wrong!!! It is always lovely when there is a great atmosphere in the room and there is no surprise that this leads to great prices being achieved, but what had the buyers interested? Gold and silver items continued to do well with a wide variety being bought by a broad church of buyers. A Meissen Lady attracted plenty of interest and a good price £1700 including buyers commission One of our long term clients had consigned a variety of wines and ports to the auction and these all achieved great prices with one case destined for a world famous client.   And three cases of port achieving in excess of £1400 each before buyers commissions. A range of Victorian oils that were a late addition to the sale all sold well to both private buyers and into the trade where they will already be winging their way to potential buyers we are sure. So our next sale is on August 19th and if you wish to be part of the continued growth and success of our Auctions please do not hesitate to contact us either by email on 01753 868076 or with images of items via email at...

June 2017 Auction ‘A View From the Rostrum’

June 2017 Auction ‘A View From the Rostrum’

Welcome to our latest monthly roundup from our June auction. Saturdays auction saw our standard wide ranging selection of collectables and antiques to suit equally wide ranging budgets.  Silver achieved some great prices with both bidders in the room and online battling it out for the best pieces.  We were delighted to offer over 50 lots of Moorcroft belonging to one gentleman’s collection. These were fiercely contested by those in the room, online and two very persistent phone bidders. The bidding was good natured, humorous and good prices were achieved for our customer. Vintage toys also made money this month with everything from lead soldiers, die-cast vehicles and a collection of 1970’s Lone Ranger figures made several hundred pounds. A large private collection of stamps split into fifteen lots also attracted a wide range of interest across all platforms and within an hour of the sale we were delighted to have another collection consigned as a result of our success. It was a busy sale even with the change of date and as ever we were delighted to meet all sorts of new customers in the room who joined in with the Windsor Auctions style of...

Antiques Road Trip at Windsor Auctions

Our April Auction saw us hosting the team from Antiques Road Trip, the BBC TV show. Experts Paul Laidlaw and Kate Bliss joined us for a great day. We sold a variety of items that they had previously bought and just like the viewers have no idea until the show goes out whether they showed a profit or a loss. We will of course let you know when that will be as many asked when their Fifteen minutes of fame would be having inadvertently bid on something being sold by the experts. We would like to say a massive thank you to the behind the scenes production crew who work so hard and even with the early morning start were very good at putting everyone at their ease, we look forward to seeing them all again soon. A few more filming images from the...
