Bidders Sign Up at Charterhouse Auction

. June 3, 2009

The Charterhouse auction of collectors’ items, including stamps, medals, coins, Dinky model vehicles and railwayana in June will attract many buyers to the sale with the vast array of items going under their hammer.

charterhouse-auction“These specialist sales are always very well attended with collectors and dealers travelling hundreds of miles to be at the auction.” Commented Richard Bromell. “In addition, we use the internet extensively which always turns up new bidders from across the UK and throughout the world as collectors look to secure pieces for their collections. Perhaps one of the most bizarre requests was by a Canadian fishing reel collector who, having seen the sale on our web site, telephoned us and requested we wind the reel so that he could hear the action! He was clearly impressed as he bid several hundred pounds to secure the lot.”

However, one section which has seen rapid growth in the market place has been for railwayana. Here, Charterhouse have had a knack of unearthing some very rare lots which have staggered buyers when they have gone under the hammer, and this sale looks to be another great event. Here, there are several South West enamel train station signs including Tisbury, Gillingham and Yeovil Junction, estimated to sell for between £300 and £600 each.

Charterhouse is now accepting further entries for their summer programme of auctions including specialist sales of militaria, clocks, trains and collectors items in June, pictures and prints in July along with classic cars, automobilia and motorbikes at Sherborne Castle also in July. For further information regarding these sales, or to arrange a free home visit, please contact Richard Bromell, Partner at Charterhouse, The Long Street Salerooms, Sherborne, Dorset DT9 3BS 01935 812277.
