Collectables and Toys

The Collectables and Toys Department deals with a wide range of artefacts, ranging from Collectables such as Coins, Stamps and Posters, Militaria, Medals and Edged Weaponry through to Toys such as Diecast Models, Railwayana, Dolls and Teddy Bears.

The department is responsible for the twice yearly Collectors sale, which is perhaps one of the most eclectic (and eccentric) auctions on the sale calendar. As the most interesting and fluid market in the auction world, with ever changing demands and interest, the main driving force for buyers and collectors is nostalgia.
