The Spring quarterly Fine Art Sale is upon us already and as always, we have some fabulous lots in store, with price ranges from fifty pounds per lot up to several thousand pounds.

All three days of the auction (26th, 27th & 28th April 2022) will offer live bidding on the-saleroom.com and easyliveauction.com, so if you are interested in bidding on one of these platforms, rather than bidding in the room, then do register early, because if you haven't bid with us before, there will be a few bits and pieces that will need to be sorted first.

So, what do we have on offer?

Day One starts off with the silver section, commencing at 10:00am. This is a large section in this auction, with over 400 lots on offer.
