Mammoth Three Day Charterhouse Auction

Charterhouse Auctioneers in Sherborne have been working hard behind closed doors following government guidelines putting together the final touches on their three day December online auction.

“We were fortunate to have plenty of work to get through which was with us before the start of lockdown.” Commented Richard Bromell. “This combined with our October auction which was postponed has resulted in a whopping three day online auction where collectors and those looking for unique Christmas presents will be able to bid, buy and have delivered in plenty of time before 25th December.”

First up, on Thursday 3rd December, there is a collection of walking sticks. The market for walking stick remains high and there are sticks estimated from £50 to £20,000. This collection is then followed on with nearly 500 lots of silver, jewellery and watches with lots from £30 to £30,000.

Next up, on Friday 4th, there are just under 600 lots with specialist sales of Asian Arts, antiques and interiors and also a section wine and port. Lots here across all sections are from £30 up to £5,000.

Finally, on Saturday 5th, there are 100’s more lots. This time, there are model cars, trains, toys, coins, militaria, other collector’s items and clocks. Here, a collection of over 3,000 model cars is getting collectors fired up along with a collection of militaria from a deceased estate in Dorchester.

All the lots for this three day online auction, on Thursday 3rd, Friday 4th and Saturday 5th December can be seen on where you can watch, follow and bid live on all the days. Alternatively, call the Charterhouse team for help and advice on 01935 812277.
