Hartleys Auctioneers & Valuers
There is a sale of some kind at least once a week at Victoria Hall and all goods entered are automatically graded in order to place them in the sale which will produce the best price.
The weekly sales of general goods provide an excellent cross section of substantial Victorian and later furniture, china, glass, small silver and plate, jewellery and general equipment. In the first sale of every month we have a special collectors' section devoted to stamps, coins, cigarette cards, postcards and medals. In the last sale of every month we have a section devoted to vintage textiles and accessories.
Four or more times per year, the collective antique furniture and fine arts sales are held, with carefully categorised items offered with the back up of generous international advertising, a high quality illustrated catalogue and an active mailing list of specialist dealers and collectors.
Other specialist sales include Toys and Dolls every Spring and Autumn with an illustrated catalogue, and Fine Wines before Christmas. Both these events which are backed up by our website have over the years attracted a regular mailing list of predominantly private buyers that bring considerable specialist enthusiasm to the chosen subject.
From time to time, single owner collections of all kinds have appeared with the vehicle of a larger auction sale. This has taken place after careful specific marketing often with the initial involvement of the owner.
