Changes & Improvements to the General Antiques & Collectables sales

Buyers may have noticed that we have recently started photographing every lot within our three-weekly General Antiques & Collectables sales; both so that we can display them to their best advantage on the big screens in the salerooms and also on our website.  The natural extension to this following the success of Live Bidding via  the-salerooom.com is to offer the same service within these sales.  We have been offering Live Bidding in our specialist sales for several years and it has become hugely successful; both with buyers from nearby who can bid from the comfort of their own homes, and from those further away who can now bid on lots which were previously beyond them.  We will be trialling this platform for three sales, and should you wish to bid through this format the easiest way is to log onto  www.the-saleroom.com , click on auctions and then scroll down/search for Lacy Scott & Knight.  You will note that the sale is split into two sales for the JLS Room (smalls, collectables etc) and the Henry Room (pictures and furniture).  If you wish to bid, simply follow the very straightforward 'sign up to bid' procedures.  Please note that buying through this platform incurs  a further 3% plus VAT surcharge to your invoice.  We would also advise that whilst the system has become far more reliable over the last 12 months, on occasion the internet does have a habit of going down and we would always advise buyers that there remains no substitute for actually being at the auction.


In addition to Live Bidding, we are extending the viewing times for these sales from midday to 7pm on the Friday prior,
 giving buyers extra flexibility and an extra 2 hours to view the sale.  We are acutely aware that the auction process continues to evolve rapidly, and to this end we hope to offer other improvements for both buyers and sellers in the near future.
