A Beswick horse sold for £6,800
We have built up an enviable reputation for conducting specialist auctions of Beswick and Royal Doulton. This department is run by Naomi Grabham, Associate Director. Naomi comes from a farming background and her Mother and her Grandmother have been keen collectors of Beswick and Royal Doulton animals and figures for decades, so it is not entirely unsurprising that Naomi has followed in their footsteps.
As an expert, Naomi takes great pride and pleasure in identifying not only the names of the pieces she values, but also their shape numbers and numerous colour ways. Over the past few years, Naomi has been an active member of The Beswick Collectors Club and regularly attends regional meeting with other enthusiasts. This has resulted in her building up a valuable database of specialist dealers and collectors, along with Charterhouse being instructed to sell collections for clients from Staffordshire down to Devon.
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.
For further information about Beswick and Doulton or Royal Doulton at Charterhouse, please contact Naomi Grabham. Naomi likes all things antique, but started her career because she fell in love with Beswick.
