Estate Sales and Private Collections

The Estate Sales and Private Collections department is dealt with by our Senior Directors, who have a wealth of experience and knowledge that makes all the difference to a successful sale. They oversee the entire auction process from the initial visit and valuation process, through to careful research, cataloguing, marketing and sale.

Lawrences regularly handle private sales across a wide spectrum of collections to include furniture, silver, ceramics and works of art. Estate sales can be conducted on-site, or from our fine and large 19th Century building in the town centre. 

If you have a significant collection that you are considering selling, please contact Chris Flower at or call 01460 73041 for a free and confidential meeting; we would be delighted to hear from you.

    “Amongst the things that have impressed me most are -your Expertise (knowledge based on experience - it’s either that, or research) which enabled you to identify items which deserved a place in the Fine Art Sales, where several went on to achieve spectacular figures. -your lotting. The way some items are lotted together, but something similar, but of higher value, is lotted on it’s own, or is put with some items of similar interest but much lower value. -your realistic guide prices. It all adds up to a seriously impressive service ! Many thanks to you and your team.”
