July At Windsor Auctions

July saw us doing all sorts of different things alongside our usual auctioneering and house clearances. Always and enjoyable day was popping down to Lyme Regis to help our sister auction house with a valuation day in support of the RNLI, not only a great organisation but lovely hosts. We sat outside the lifeboat station appraising a wide range of items in return for a donation. The general public got to see where their donations go as there was a ‘shout’ whilst we were there and the crew were quickly launched in to the harbour. Next year our intention is to return to an online and live auction in the lifeboat station itself so if you are a company or generous individual who has a top end item or similar that we can auction please do get in touch (01753 868076 or sales@windsorauctions.co.uk)   No sooner was our auctioneer Harry back from doing this then he was off to talk about downsizing and how Auction Houses like ours can help at Castle View Retirement Village in Windsor. What a great set up and a lovely group of people are around to support the owners.  The views from the Sky Bar over Windsor are truly impressive. If you are planning a move or want to arrange a tour give Ruth a call on 01753 378127 there is nothing she doesn’t know about the development. Our Auctions continue to grow and June and July have seen all sorts of treasures come to market, we are delighted that the silver section of our sales have continued to grow and that we are now offering clients of large collections or similar there own auctions. Our House Clearance division continues at pace and the team are creating quite a name for themselves with the number of compliments they get from clients, always willing to go the extra mile. If you have items that you are looking to sell or just want a steer on value and saleability please don’t hesitate to contact us 01753 868076 or...

A Feelgood Story To Start The Week

Windsor Auctions sees great success on a bronze figure in first auction welcoming people back in the room Windsor Auctions Antiques and Collectables sale on Saturday 24th April saw a wide range of interesting items from private collections, dealer sales and house clearances. Although auctions continued online throughout lockdown – last weekend was the first sale Windsor Auctions were able to welcome people back into the room and the team couldn’t be happier. The stand out success of the sale was a single bronze, consigned by a lady who is downsizing and moving home, that she bought for only 50p. A last minute entry and catalogued as After Giacomo Zoffoli (c.1731-1785) Italian, “Flore Farnese”, signed, a green patina bronze. Although estimated at £200 to £400, the hammer went down after five minutes of bidding in the room, on the internet and via multiple phone lines at £5500.
