Maybe it’s the scent of blossom on the air or the sunshine on our faces, but here at B&W, we always love the month of March and 2022 is no different.
This March we are switching things up slightly and having a Special Two-Day Auction of Unreserved Watch & Jewellery Stock from a London Jeweller, taking place on Tuesday 22nd & Wednesday 23rd March, 10am.
London? Biddle & Webb? Yes that’s right, we travel! We were asked to firstly value this large commercial job back in April/May 2021. Undertaken by myself and our director, Jeremy, it was a two day job where we found ourselves with a final inventory of over 500 items.
Back at the office, as a team, we put a value to every inventory item, uploaded hundreds of photographs and produced a fairly weighty document to send through to our clients who were very pleased with the final report.
Then we waited and waited, and waited a little more until we finally got the email early this year that we could collect the goods and the contents of the shop (which Jeremy had previously valued), and were given the go ahead to sell at auction. It was a very happy day at Biddle & Webb!
Around three trips later we had all of the items with us and were all set to start identifying, cataloguing and photographing. It has been a mammoth job ticking off and lotting all of these items, but the Biddle & Webb team has been efficient and committed to making sure we get the best result for our client by making this one of the best auctions of the year!
We are holding viewing for all of the lots on Friday 18th, Saturday 19th and Monday 21st March. Please visit our website, www.biddleandwebb.com, to book a viewing time slot.
Feel free to get in touch if you would like any further details.
