Specialist Auctions

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 exhibits.
