Lots for sale!

Thursday, August 25, 2011

Local MP Meg Munn recently visited Sheffield Auction Gallery, the oldest and largest auction house in the city and situated in her constituency of Sheffield Heeley. She was shown around the site by Liz, who told Meg that there were 650 lots up for sale in their current auction alone.

 

The auctions attract a great number of people and with their new facilities seating and space is no longer an issue. Lots are now shown electronically on computer screens instead of in the traditional way of being held up by porters. Sales also go out live on the internet, with bidders being able to listen in on the auction through webcam and bid as they wish.

 

 The Gallery deals in specialist items such as fine art, war memorabilia, furniture and other antiquities. Their highest grossing item was a carved ivory box sold for 60,000. 

 

Meg commented:

 

“The Auction house is an example of a thriving local business. They work with charities and help collectors with their passion. Local people are able to purchase one-of-a-kind artwork, furniture, jewellery and other speciality items”
