“Our November two day sale is always popular sale in the auction calendar.” Commented Richard Bromell. “We have many private clients coming to the auction looking for special and unique presents for loved ones along with dealers who are looking for extra stock for the run up to Christmas. However, what is amazing this time is the size of some of the lots – both little and large which carry the top high estimates and I cannot wait to see how they sell.”
