Auction House claims it has set a new UK auction record, after entering 703 lots into its February auctions.
The number instructed beats the figure listed in December last year, which was the company’s previous highest ever total.
“Never before has an auctioneer entered over 700 lots into its auctions in a single month. It’s a remarkably buoyant start to the year, which signals a noticeable resurgence in auction activity. It means that more sellers are choosing the auction route to market, their confidence levels are raised and the sector is back in the ascendancy” claims founding director Roger Lake said
The firm is launching Auction House Bristol & West later this year and new auction rooms being added in Luton, Peterborough and Reading. More commercial instructions are being targeted with the new venture Auction House North West Commercial, plus the Auction House London sales room is moving to the capital’s Marriott Hotel Regents Park, with a record catalogue of 138 lots entered into their first event of the year on February 22.
