Bringing our auctions back to you safely during Coronavirus (Covid-19)
Firstly, we would like to say thank you for your continued support and understanding throughout the past few months. Our last sale was held back in March and, in line with government advice, we have postponed our sales since.
Throughout this time, we have been busy planning for our return. Behind the scenes we have been completing our return catalogue - making it bigger and better and we have also been looking at ways to re-open with safety as priority. We are happy to announce that the auction will re-open on Monday 8th June 2020, with an auction scheduled to happen on Saturday 13th June 2020 - however, changes will apply…

The notary is Henry Eldar (he is the writer of the document) Two seals are appended, one possibly being that of Patrick Inglis.
