"Great evening, entertaining and real bargains!" says Sharon Evans. Another review by William Lapthorn praises the auctioneer: "Paul Keen (auctioneer) gets good prices for all sorts. He has excellent all round knowledge".
Instagram page, @plymouthauctionrooms, includes a five star review from Mr T. He says "What a result, however, I'm not surprised. The work you did pre-auction, the video and the many superb photos - you gave my watch the best possible chance to get a good price. You have surpassed my expectations!"
Social media channels and the website are the best way to keep up to date with Plymouth Auction Rooms which is based in Faraday Mill. There will be an Antiques and Valuables sale on August 17th, followed by Robert Lenkiewicz & Contemporary Art on 27th September, and Fine Jewellery & Watches on 28th September.
"We appreciate the emotional connections and special memories that possessions can evoke" Plymouth Auction Rooms state, "We genuinely care about our customers, their families, and their possessions".
Remember the elephant sculptures dotted around Plymouth for Elmers Parade in 2o19? These 4o elephants were auctioned off at the Cattedown based auction rooms, and an amazing amount of £323,750 was raised for St Luke's Hospice.
The auction rooms has evolved to become one of the leading salerooms in the West Country, with specialist sales offered for art, antiques, jewellery, and watches, plus many other kinds of collectables. Over the years they've been trading, sale highlights include: a rare double sided Beryl Cook painting, one side called 'The Tango' and the other 'The Expedition', which sold for £10,600. Several Robert Lenkiewicz paintings have been snapped up at Plymouth Auction Rooms too over the years. An extremely unusual pair of porcelain parrots went for a whopping £200,000. Many other items have been passed through and found a new home via the auction, stunning old rings and necklaces, and even a rare extending Victorian table. There are also regular auctions for Toy & Models.
This Cattedown based business really is 'Connecting buyers and sellers around the globe' and putting Plymouth's East End on the map!
