Diverse range of lots to mark new Wolverhampton Auction Rooms’ inaugural sale

Posted on

Having refurbished former sale rooms in Wolverhampton city centre, Cuttlestones Auctioneers and Valuers will be holding its inaugural ‘Antique and Home Sale’ at the new venue off Clarence Street on Wednesday, 21st September. With a thriving sale room in the nearby market town of Penkridge, Cuttlestones has gained a reputation for achieving excellent results while offering highly competitive commission rates for both buyers and vendors.

This, the first of what will be regular monthly auctions, has attracted a diverse catalogue of lots; including some of particular local interest. A large single-owner collection of Beswick figures, ranging from the well-known horses and animals through to more unusual examples such as Thunderbirds, has been consigned for sale. Forming a significant portion of the ceramics section, it represents a singular opportunity for Beswick collectors to pick up some very interesting pieces.

Also coming under the hammer is a collection of furniture from Tettenhall College, including a good quality carved Oak Victorian desk, and a really eclectic mix of modern and period furniture amongst which is a local eight-day longcase clock from a Bridgnorth maker.

MD and head auctioneer, Ben Gamble, says:

Wolverhampton has long been crying out for its own auction house and, with our established reputation and experienced team, we felt ready to grasp the opportunity. We are hugely excited about the potential for this new venue, there’s a distinct gap in the market for our services and we look forward to providing the area with a strong auction house.
“The first sale catalogue is really strong and there’s a great mix of lots on offer – genuinely something for everyone.

Cuttlestones’ Wolverhampton debut on Wednesday the 21st September will be the first of monthly ‘Antique and Home Sales’, with the next scheduled for October 19th. Everything from modern and vintage household goods and furniture through to antiques, jewellery and collectables will be up for auction – perfect for anyone seeking unique finds and bargain pieces.

The catalogue will be available to view online at the Cuttlestones website from the Friday prior to the sale, and viewing will take place from 10am till 7pm on Thursday 20th September and from 9am on the morning of the sale. If unable to attend, people also are welcome to leave commission bids.
