coins of the realm

On inheriting his father's coin collection, a gentleman thought that perhaps one or two of the pieces could be of value. On contacting Dawsons, our team of experts were delighted to value, catalogue and promote the collection. The earliest example dated as far back as 1604!

Our bespoke international marketing engaged a global audience of bidders, and ensured the collection sold for over £180,000.

Needless to say, the family were delighted to witness such a fitting tribute to their father's memory.

a lucky london surprise

A client was dealing with a deceased relatives estate, and uncovered a large collection of pottery that had been carefully wrapped in old 1970s newspaper.

Our Specialists assessed the collection and discovered that the pottery had been created by the much sought after Victorian firm of Martin Brothers.

Much to the family's delight and surprise, the Dawsons team valued, marketed and sold the collection for an impressive £150,000.

A country house auction

A family was relocating abroad and needed to clear and sell the contents of their large Berkshire mansion. Possessions included fine paintings, decorative art and antique furniture that had been lovingly collected over a 30 year period. Our experienced team catalogued and photographed all of the valuables in-situ.

Dawsons' in-house marketing team then promoted the collection as a single owner country house auction.

The collection saw intense interest from buyers around the world and sold for over £200,000.


modern british works

We were instructed to sell a large modern British paintings collection of 50 works. Built up over the last 40 years, the collection had mostly been acquired from galleries and included renowned artists such as Donald Macintyre, James Morrison, George Devlin, John Bellany amongst others.

Dawsons team carefully catalogued, photographed and promoted this 'single owner collection' to a global audience of active bidders.

This wonderful collection sold for over £120,000.
