Sporting

177176The West Country has been a popular destination for sporting men and women for centuries. During this time, houses have been furnished with silver sporting trophies, taxidermy, paintings, hunting jackets, riding boots, fishing rods, reels and tackle, shotguns, rifles and pistols amongst many other items.

5,000At Charterhouse we have specialist sales dedicated to sporting items with hunting, shooting and fishing sections. This department is run by George Holtby. Growing up in rural England, George has been interested in shooting and fishing since he was a boy. His particular interest lies in guns of all shapes and sizes, although he also has a soft spot for fishing tackle, particularly Hardy of Alnwick.

We have had some amazing results. These have ranged from a pair of Holland & Holland coaching lamps which sold for £2,300, a Black Forest bear for £2,700, to a 19th century oil painting of horses for £5,000.

Image059Over the years, our sporting auctions produced a loyal following with bidders adding to their collections. We also sell lots to clients intending to use their purchases such as shotguns and fishing reels in their favourite past times.

If you have a sporting item or collection you are thinking of having valued, contact George at our salerooms 01935 812277 or send a selection of images to gh@charterhouse-auction.com.

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.
