Advertising Antiques and Enamel Signs.

As one of the largest regional auctioneers in the UK, Anderson and Garland auctioneers specialise in the valuation and selling of advertising antiques and enamel signs, at our state-of-the-art auction house, in Newcastle. 

Enamel advertising signs and antiques from the 19th Century through to the latter part of the 20th Century, are in high demand, due to their large, bold style with rich colours and often humourous catchphrases. Signs advertising hundreds of brands, many that have long ceased to exist, fetch particularly impressive sums at our auction house. Some of the most popular are brands that are those of Newcastle and North East historical interest.

Live bidding, targeted mailing lists and Internet marketing, ensure that collectors, enthusiasts and dealers come from across the world to buy at our sales. 

We offer free pre-sale valuations for auction at our offices in Newcastle between Monday-Friday 9am-5pm and selected Saturday mornings. Please call us on 0191 430 3000 to arrange a valuation appointment. Alternatively, please fill out our online valuation form with details and photographs of your advertising signs and antiques and we will get back to you with an estimate.
