2019 auction results: spotlight on our specialist auctions

2019 has been an exceptional year at Newcastle auction house, Anderson and Garland auctioneers. View a selection of highlights from this year’s specialist auctions:

Anderson and Garland auctioneers regularly hold specialist auctions, with a quarterly Fine Art Auction, occasional Collectors’ Auctions and other themes including watches, musical instruments, stamps, coins and postcards.

This year, we achieved some amazing sales prices in many of our specialist auctions, including a Rolex Oyster Perpetual GMT-Master that sold for £15,000! We also hosted a number of charity auctions, raising funds for St Oswalds hospice, the Sir Bobby Robson Foundation and Durham Cathedral through auction.
