Stroud Auctions’ March sale featured the always popular specialist sections of jewellery, silver, coins, watches, clocks and bijouterie, and once again some really remarkable prices were achieved. 

A truly fabulous pair of earrings by Italian maker Carlo Guiliano prompted a flurry of bidding and made more than anyone expected, proving once again that prices for the best antique jewellery are still on the increase. 

A pair of Corinthian column candlesticks dating to 1902 realised £589 – once again these were of the best quality and pretty much an ideal size, and the eventual hammer price was really pleasing.

The next auction will be on May 10th & 11th and includes guns and weapons, medals and militaria, bladed weapons, taxidermy and sporting and ceramics and glass. If you’ve never thought of buying at auction, why not come along to our public viewing day on May 9th between 10am and 6pm?

We are also still accepting items for our June auction, which will once again include jewellery, silver, watches and coins. This will be our first auction in our brand new purpose-built saleroom just outside Stroud, and we couldn’t be more excited. If you would like to see us in our new location then we are open for viewing as usual on Tuesday June 13th from 10am to 6pm.

If you are thinking of selling, please give us a call on 01453 873800 to book a valuation or just email and ask for advice from one of our specialists.
