The sale consists of over 470 lots to include a good range of antiques and collectables including Pottery, Gold and Silver Jewellery, Furniture, Silver and various other antiques too! This sale contains some great items of gold and silver to include sovereigns and jewellery and a private collection of Warhammer and similar items.
We are now accepting lots for future auctions in 2022 and we offer free no-obligation auction valuations too! Our catalogues are advertised across the globe to gain your items maximum exposure! Please do get in touch for further information. We are holding a Specialist Sale of Gold, Silver and Jewellery in September and we are offering a 0% sellers' commission on all gold coins entered into the auction. The entry deadline is August 18th at 12 noon.
People have been asking when we shall start having auctions with people in the room as well as online! This is something we, as a company, are eager to start however we don't currently have the facility to do so at this present time due not being able to find suitable premises! We are looking to hold viewing days and in-person auctions as soon as we are able and will hopefully update you once we have found a suitable venue.
The sale is purely ONLINE-ONLY with LIVE online bidding accepted through our own website (www.leightonhallauctions.com), Easylive Auctions and The-Saleroom, whilst phone and absentee bids are gratefully accepted too until 5:30pm on the Friday before the auction! Buyer's Premium is charged at 20% plus VAT (24% VAT inclusive) which is payable on top of the hammer price for every lot unless otherwise stated. Bidding online also incurs an extra charge depending on which platform and option you choose.
Each lot has a full description complimented with at least one picture and in most instances, an accompanying condition report too, which are completed to the best of our ability but should be used as an indication only. If you require further information about a lot's condition, then please don't hesitate to contact us!
Leighton Hall Auctions offers an in-house Postage and Packing facility so please contact us should you have any queries relating to that. Please see our shipping policy for any other queries. We can also assist by recommending couriers for those larger items or ones that aren't suitable for posting.
Collections of purchased lots are welcomed, however, these must also be paid for in advance and pre-arranged due to the lots being stored securely off-site to ensure we can have the lots here for you to collect without any problems. Collections are to be made from Tuesday to Friday in the week following the sale from 8AM until 5PM. All lots must be paid for and collected/ posted arranged 5 working days after the auction, unless otherwise agreed prior to the auction. If goods aren't collected within 5 days of the auction, then a storage charge of £1 per day per lot will be added as we sadly can't continue to offer free storage. If you have difficulty to collect within 5 days, then please speak to us and we will be more than happy to help where we can!
Please contact us before arriving at our premises to ensure someone is around to help you and ensure we can ensure your lots are onsite, and not in our storage facility offsite.
If you have any questions, please don't hesitate to contact our office at any point during normal working hours! Please note, it is unlikely we will be able to answer the phone on sale day due to being occupied with the sale. We shall be available from Monday to Friday everyday otherwise from 9AM until 5PM.
We hope you enjoy looking through the catalogue and we all look forward to dealing with you!
