Piccadilly, Manchester 1915 (FS31/362) by Helen Bradley (1900-1979) is being offered in our two day Fine Sale on 12th/13th July 2016 and is expected to fetch between
        £30,000 and £50,000.

Rachel Littlewood reports on an exciting Summer 2016 Fine Sale, which saw several of the pictures on offer in the sale come under intense competition resulting in them becoming the top selling lots in the two day auction. The jewellery also proved buoyant with several ceramics attaining good results too.

A diving helment from the Tony and Yvonne Pardoe Collection, which will be auctioned
        in June 2016. We have exploited the Internet and social media to generate considerable
        interest in this niche collection some six months before it is due to be sold. Brian Goodison-Blanks reflects on how the Internet is changing the fundamental dynamics of the auction market. While there is no doubt that online technologies have been highly disruptive, the auctioneer has not fallen in the digital age. Indeed, by embracing the new technologies, Bearnes Hampton & Littlewood are reaching many more buyers world-wide, often for items with very niche appeal.
Front Cover of The Lot Magazine Bearnes Hampton & Littlewood publishes an occasional magazine called The Lot covering our recent news and saleroom hightlights. It also provides interesting insights into our work. The current and previous editions can be downloaded in PDF format or read online as a page-by-page electronic magazine.
