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...

U3A Antiques Group Learning about Auctions and Antiques

We were delighted to spend a pleasant morning with the Antiques group from the Windsor U3A group. All were keen to learn about the goings on at a Provincial Auction House, what amazing finds we have had over the years the most expensive item found and the weirdest. Then we discussed how best to go about buying at Auction and although the use of bidding online has grown it was very much the popular opinion that attending viewing days and seeing the items up close was by far the best way to proceed. We discussed bidding and buyers commission and how it is often a good idea when starting out to have a chart to hand of what you are actually bidding, which is the bid price plus commission, whilst starting out to avoid surprises and confusion. Then it was on to valuations and appraisals with all sorts of things coming out of assorted bags around the room, from a hugely valuable medal collection to very collectable costume jewellery and all sorts of bits. A great group of very welcoming individuals and many thanks for having us. Sometimes it is a great way to spend time spreading the word about the joys and fun to be had at buying and selling at Auction. If you have a community group or association who might be interested in a short talk followed by appraisals give us a call on 01753...
