First Specialist Collectors Sale to be held at Cuttlestones’ new Wolverhampton auction rooms

Posted on

In the wake of the first of its monthly Home and Antiques sales at its new Wolverhampton premises, progressive local auction house Cuttlestones is preparing to host the first Specialist Collectors’ Sale at the venue on Friday 4th November.

Always a firm favourite in the company’s packed auction calendar, the Specialist Collectors’ Sales focus on items that are of particular interest to the collectors market, with lots that can include everything from toys, books, stamps and maps to militaria and sporting ephemera. Due to the popularity of these Specialist Collectors’ Sales, Cuttlestones offers online catalogues and live internet bidding, while extensively marketing the auctions to achieve the best possible results.

The sale will be the first large scale event at the new Wolverhampton Auction Rooms and is an important marker for the Cuttlestones team, as Managing Director Ben Gamble explains:

The Collectors’ Sale is going to include some really interesting local items, and, because this will be the first major sale of this kind at our new Wolverhampton sale rooms, we are very excited. These sales tend to be huge hit, attracting both specialists and beginners alike, and we want to encourage anyone with an interest in collectables to come along. Our online bidding facility has also proved invaluable to the success of our collectors sales; by extending our reach beyond the sale room we regularly have people bidding on lots from all over the world.

One item of particular local interest to be included in the sale is a replica of the Victoria Cross medal awarded posthumously to Alfred Sephton, a 30 year-old Petty Officer raised in Wolverhampton, for his heroism in WWII. The replica medal was presented to Sephton’s family after the original was stolen from Coventry Cathedral while on display, and the lot includes a range of other items that help bring fascinating story of bravery to life. Local sporting ephemera is also well represented by a collection of over 150 Wolverhampton Wanderers programmes which date from 1947 to 1968 set to go under the hammer.

The Specialist Collectors’ Sale will commence at 10am on Friday 4th November at Cuttlestones’ Clarence Street auction rooms. Entries for the sale will be accepted Thursdays and Fridays – 9am to 5pm, with viewing from 10am to 7pm on the Thursday prior to the sale.
