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.
We always aim to deliver excellent sale results for the vendors we represent and have acted for thousands of sellers this year to ensure that our clients are satisfied with their sales figures.
