Of particular note is that moving to wholly online sales, with our increased investment in associated marketing and promotion has positively impacted international bidder numbers, hammer prices and sell through rates. We have a comprehensive diary of auctions planned for 2021, so should you be considering selling, please do get in touch for help and professional advice. We would also like to thank all of our clients, old and new, sellers and buyers, for their continued support in 2020 and we look forward to being of service to you next year.
