The auction rooms hold regular sales featuring antique furniture, silver, jewellery, ceramics, watches, collector’s items, clocks and paintings.

Paul’s enthusiasm for promotion and marketing has yielded many exceptional results including a record price for a pair of Chinese Export pottery parrots at £170,000; the auction of English gold pattern coins, selling worldwide for £330,000; and the sale of a cricket ball from the famous 1933 ‘bodyline’ series for £10,000.
