These three-weekly sales are the largest of their kind in East Anglia, generally totalling approx 1200 lots sold across two rooms. The majority of entries are from house clearances to include deceased estates. Lots generally range from modest items worth a few pounds, to good quality reproduction furniture and Georgian and later antiques selling for up to £1000. Collectables include; ceramics, silver, jewellery, dolls, books, and mixed box lots of ephemera.
A recent highlight was the sale of a rare circa 1860s French sub-miniature wet-plate fixed-focus camera as discovered by Paul Laidlaw and featured on the BBC’s Antiques Road Trip. It eventually sold over the telephone for £20,000 – a show record.
