Lacy Scott & Knight are an independent and long-established firm of Auctioneers & Valuers and Property Professionals. We have been selling antiques and works of art since 1869, and in our purpose-built Auction Centre situated in the heart of historic Bury St Edmunds since the 1980s.
We are one of the largest salerooms in the East of England, holding a diverse range of specialist and general collectors auctions throughout the year. All of our sales are fully catalogued and hosted online, with live bidding available through our website and thesaleroom.com.
Our December 2023 Medals & Militaria auction includes a Caterpillar Club medal awarded to Flying Officer John Fleming MBE for bailing out of a burning aeroplane during the Battle of Britain.
Unfortunately not exactly, but our 11th November auction contains a large collection of Bury St Edmunds related postcards, photographs and ephemera from the late Victorian and Edwardian eras – showing both how things have changed and also remained the same.
Our forthcoming Fine Art & Antiques auction includes an intriguing painting, which has been subject to extensive research by the vendor and auction house.
In a world of convenient fast fashion and off-the-peg clothes shopping, few of us now regularly sew at home but this was once an unavoidable task for every household and most (generally) women would own a whole sewing kit – including a pin cushion.
We were honoured to hold the auction of the estate of much-missed antiques dealers Richard & Miranda Goodbrey on Saturday 20th May. At just under 600 lots, the auction showcased the Goodbrey’s expert eye for the quirky, interesting and fine quality, with a particular focus on folk art. The sale totalled just over £190,000 including buyers fees.
Our 16th June Medals, Militaria & Country Pursuits auction includes a collection of items and ephemera belonging to a distinguished Victorian military man, Lieutenant General Sir George Lloyd Reilly Richardson, whose career spanned decades and continents.
Our 17th June Fine Art & Antiques auction includes a selection of skeleton clocks by renowned 19th century Bury St Edmunds clockmakers John Pace (1783-1867) and Benjamin Parker (1795-1860).
