October Collectors� Sale a first for Staffordshire auction house Cuttlestones...

Staffordshire auctioneers & valuers, Cuttlestones, is continuing its rapid growth with the addition of several Collectors’ Sales to its already busy auction schedule; the first of which is set to take place on Friday, 8th October. The sale, which will see lots that include scientific apparatus, militaria, medals and toy trains come under the hammer, is a natural step for the progressive auction house as MD and head auctioneer, Ben Gamble, explains:

“We’ve been aggressively working to improve the quality of our sales over the past two years, investing heavily in the refurbishment of the sale room, a dynamic web presence with online bidding and extensive PR and marketing. The activity is paying dividends – we’re achieving strong prices and attracting global bidders which, in turn, is encouraging people to consign more – and better quality – items.

“The result is that our Fine Art Sales are becoming over-subscribed so we believe that by adding a series of regular Collectors’ Sales to focus on items of particular interest to serious collectors, we can provide these items with the very best platform for their promotion and sale.”

Highlights of the first Collectors’ Sale include a 16 th Century bible by the London publisher Christopher Barker which, dated 1585, is in excellent condition and a beautiful example of an early family bible. Also coming under the hammer is an 18 th Century map of Wolverhampton - surveyed in 1750 it shows the city before it transformed rapidly with the dawn of the industrial revolution. There’s also a collection of mid-20 th Century photographs of Stafford General Infirmary which are likely to be of interest to local historians.

Viewing for Cuttlestones’ 8 th October Collectors’ Sale will take place on Thursday, 7 th October between 10am – 7pm and the catalogue will be available online from Friday 1 st. For those unable to attend the auction, live internet bidding via www.the-saleroom.com , commission and telephone bidding options are available.
