Lacy Scott & Knight have a long history of carrying out
specialist on-site sales for Country Houses and Businesses and of
arranging sales by tender, should this be more appropriate.
We are also able to hold Single Owner Collection sale at the
Auction Centre such as the much publicised John Clibbon sale of
Gauge 1 Trains and a rare barn-find collection of modern classic
cars which sold for over £200,000 in March 2010 and secured
a page in the Daily Telegraph. 2011 saw the sale of a
Suffolk collection of over 40,000 postcards and a single owner
collection of Medals & Militaria.
We are also extremely proud to have twice been the
auctioneers for Sir Bobby Robson's Breakthrough Auction & Ball
in memory of former England football manager Sir Bobby Robson and
breast cancer campaigner Sally Balch. The first sale in 2011
raised a fantastic £250,000 for Breakthrough Breast Cancer and the
Sir Bobby Robson Foundation.
In 2012 we had a Vintage Costume sale which was a great success
- and a lot of fun for all involved. We also held the second
part of the legendary John Clibbon Tinplate Collection which
included a model of Holborn Station which sold for £41,000.
2013 included The Angus McBean Collection in April; a
stand-alone auction of a collection of works by, and property
belonging to, the late celebrated society and theatre photographer
Angus McBean. We also hosted three auctions for local charities -
East Anglian Children's Homes (EACH), West Suffolk Hospital Charity
and the second Sit Bobby Robson fundraiser.
In March 2014 we held an auction of virtually every Elvis
Presley UK release, which inadvertently caused manager Edward
Crichton to sing on the local news, while 2015 included the Rodney
Count Toy collection and the Bury St Edmunds wolf trail
