Established in 1964, a family business which has been passed down through four generations. We are proud to say that a large proportion of new business is generated by personal recommendation.
We take pride in being one of the leading provincial Auctioneers, a family run business established in 1964 and spanning three generations. Today we offer a high level of expertise and professionalism combined with the personal service and friendly attitude that clients have come to expect from this long standing firm. We hold six-weekly sales throughout the year covering all manner of collectables and antiques. We handle consignments ranging from single items to complete house contents and hold regular auctions comprising up to 3000 lots. These usually take place over three days and are sub-divided under the following categories. *Oriental Carpets and Rugs *Textiles *Miscellaneous Collectables *Books *Ceramics and Glass *Jewellery and Watches *Silver and Plate *Metals *Oil Paintings, Watercolours and Prints *Antique and Reproduction Furniture and Clocks All items offered for auction are on view on the Friday and Saturday prior to the mid-week sale. Anyone can attend either the viewing or the sale itself. It is not necessary to attend the sale as written bids can be left in advance, which Lawrences will execute on your behalf (further details on request). It is also possible to bid live via the telephone, however, for practical reasons this service is limited and is offered at our discretion. On Line bidding available
