Good afternoon to our visitors.  We hope that you are keeping safe and well.

“If you’re not bidding, please can you leave the room!”

In a plea no auctioneer would ever usually dream of saying, Guy Charrison, in an unprecedented move, was compelled to make the request as bidders pushed and shouted to try and get into the saleroom at The Westbury Mayfair Hotel to bid.

Network Auctions’ first ballroom sale of the year on 20th February opened with the company’s biggest ever catalogue – and biggest ever turnout – proving there’s more substance to the ‘Boris Bounce’ than just newspaper headlines.
