Taking place four times a year on a Saturday, these auctions are a great source for Art Deco collectors and people looking to furnish houses with classic 20th Century designs. Items include Art Deco favourites such as Lalique glass, Clarice Cliff and Moorcroft pottery, and Studio ceramics and glass; 1960’s and 70’s furniture such as G-plan and Ercol; stylish travel and advertising posters from the 1930’s onwards; and a myriad of Retro items from the mid 20th Century.

We hold these sales in our principal sale room (room 1) and at, with live online bidding on sale day taking the lots to a national and international audience.

The viewing takes place on the preceding Friday, 2.00 p.m. – 6.00 pm, and on the morning of the sale.
