The Potteries Auctions October auction is our first two-day sale following our new format, spanning over Friday 9th October and Saturday 10th October as opposed to the usual Saturday and Sunday – starting at 10am on both days. This means that our viewing days have also moved. Viewings can be arranged by appointment only on Wednesday 7th October and Thursday 8th October. On auction days there will be limited bidding in the room and is also by appointment only. Please call to book as places are strictly limited.
Masks are required for both viewing days and auction days, and there will be no viewing or collecting of items on auction days. For more information on the safety measures we currently have in place at our Silverdale saleroom please click here.
Other bidding such as live online bidding, commission bids and telephone bidding can be made through The Saleroom and Easylive Auctions. Find out more on how to submit a commissioned bid at auction, and view the full catalogue for our upcoming auction here.
