Welcome to a rather special sale. We are receiving many more calls of people wishing to sell their treasures. Its a pleasure to offer you so much fresh material that at times, hasn’t been seen for several generations.

This sale features some exceptional sections.  Remember that scans are available of most lots, single items are illustrated on our website and you can always view lots at our office (by appointment).

During May/June I will be travelling to Norfolk and Wiltshire visiting customers.  If you wish me to visit you please call the office.
