Highlights from our November 2021 Fine Art Sale
The top selling lot and star of this month’s Fine Art auction was this Patek Philippe 18ct gold ladies wristwatch, which sold for a whopping £6900!
Our three-day Fine Art sale this month took place on Thursday 11th, Friday 12th and Saturday 13th November and featured an exciting array of items, from dinnerware and other household items to a very large assortment of rare British pottery pieces, timepieces and more.
Plenty of lots from our Fine Art auction live from the Silverdale Saleroom sold for a good price, so check out some of the highlights from our most recent auction below. Who knows? Maybe they’ll provide some inspiration if you have a valuation in mind.
