Message from the Directors
Clevedon Salerooms are now closed in accordance with government directives that include auction houses. We have taken steps to continue working remotely, but naturally this means a much reduced service. Our on-line Free Valuations remain active on our website. We will not be able to answer telephone calls during the closure and ask that all communication is via email: email@example.com .
Vendors from the 12th March Specialist Sale: We have brought forward the payment of sale proceeds. All vendor payments are being processed on Tuesday 24th March. Those receiving funds by bank transfer should receive funds instantaneously. Those receiving funds by cheque will need to factor in any Royal Mail delays.
The cancelled 26th March Antiques & Interiors Sale, which is already in place, will become our first sale once government restrictions are lifted
We would like to take this opportunity to thank all of our customers for their support and understanding during this difficult period and ask that you do all that you can to remain safe.
Stay Safe and Stay at Home.
Chinese ‘lamp’ lights up the auction at Clevedon Salerooms
A new record total of 1,167 online bidders registered for the quarterly sale of Antiques, Fine Art and Collectors’ Items held at the Kenn Road Auction Centre on Thursday 12th March. Almost 900 bids were registered online, but the saleroom was still packed to see a larger-than-average auction of over 850 lots, bolstered by significant consignments from properties in Bristol, the Mendips and South Wales, combine to achieve the best overall hammer total since 2018, with a selling rate of 85%.
