Dave Eglington

Auctioneer and Valuer

Auctioneer Dave loves nothing more than the buzz of a sale day. He has a broad knowledge of antiques & collectables and, although his main area of expertise lies in antique and modern silver and jewellery, he is always trying to satisfy his thirst for knowledge in other specialist areas like sporting memorabilia and his favourite new sale feature – fine wines, ports & cognacs.
In his spare time Dave is a keen triathlete, indulges in his passion for all things Italian and would welcome any tests on his Italian vocabulary.
