Charterhouse hold four specialist jewellery, watch and silver auctions per year which are always very well attended by both members of the public and the trade, ensuring constant impressive results and a very high selling rate. The late 20th century designer market is particularly buoyant at the moment.

Our specialist has over 30 years of experience in the field and is fully conversant with all types of silverware, whether it be a rare Scottish provincial spoon, a Georgian tea service by Paul Storr, an early 20th century Chinese tea caddy by Luen Wo of Shang Hai, or an elaborate silver-gilt candelabra by Stuart Devlin.

Valuations for auction, probate, family division or insurance can be carried out in house, at a client’s home for larger collections or at a safe deposit facility.

All of our auctions use live internet bidding platforms to ensure that every lot, whether it is worth £20 or £500,000, reaches the widest possible market and sells for the best price possible. In the run up to an auction we receive 100’s of emails requesting further information for lots in the sale. Attached to these email replies, we regularly send well over 1,000 digital images, such is the huge interest generated in our auctions.
