We are now accepting entries for our October 9 th auction  

Antiques Collectables Vintage Wine & Port Chinese & Japanese works of art, Gold, Silver, Fishing reels and Paraphernalia
Gold and Silver coins 

Lot 1 is Bloomin' marvellous 

To coincide with the ITV series Victoria we can offer the opportunity to purchase a pair of Queen Victoria's undergarments.
There are six other pairs in known existence worldwide, so are an exceedingly rare item.

These garments are made of the finest Welsh cotton with a 55 inch drawstring waist - therefore from her later life circa 1890, and monogrammed with her VR cypher, and 36 being the production issue number.
They are in good condition with minor foxing as a result of age.

Estimate  £3000 £5000
The last known sale of a pair of Victoria's bloomers was at Christies in London  and achieved a record price. We will anticipate significant worldwide interest.

The highlight of Westenhanger Auctioneers July sale was this stunning V12 2 + 2 series 3  E-Type Jaguar in Royal Blue. Having been owned by the client for the past 25 years and only covering under 50,000 miles from new this lot was sure to attract a huge amount of interest. 

After many viewings, and with interest from Holland, Australia, Belgium and all over the UK this classic beauty went under the hammer with Principal Auctioneer Michael Hogben conducting the sale. 

After a lengthy bidding frenzy between three phone bidders and bidding in the room the car sold to a collector for £37,000 plus 20% buyers premium. The owner was extremely pleased with the result, speaking after the sale he said "I'm so thrilled that the car has gone to someone who will get as much enjoyment from it as I have over the past two and a half decades. Michael and his team did such a great job at promoting the car, arranging viewings etc and I would highly recommend them to anyone who has a rare or classic vehicle to sell"

Michael Hogben, our Head Valuer and Auctioneer, is available to offer free valuations for sale by auction on weekdays between 9.30am and 3.30pm at our Head Office, oto receive lots for our forthcoming sales. If you are unable to bring the items to us due to their size, or the volume of items, we are happy to arrange a FREE home appointment. Alternatively,  certain valuations can be undertaken using photographs sent by post or email.

If your item requires specialist knowledge or research we have a wide network of specialists we can consult, which ensures the item is given the best chance of reaching its optimum price. Please contact us today to arrange a house contents valuation.

Westenhanger Auctions and Michael Hogben offer a quick and thorough valuation service for the purpose of Probate and Inheritance Tax with a sensitive approach. Liaising directly with Executors, or Solicitors, we provide professional, comprehensive valuations to ameliorate the Probate process. The Company works with a number of local Solicitors and undertakes an increasing amount of work for private individuals who are Executors. This situation can frequently cause issues within a family, or other interested parties, and can so often be resolved by the advice of a professional Valuer. Whether is a complete house clearance, or merely to look at a couple of items such as jewellery or a painting, our visit is FREE.

Please contact us to arrange an appointment  0777 999 5117  or 01303 81 35 45

We can also provide other valuations for situations such as Probate  Family Division or sales by Private Treaty, and Insurance Valuations

Pre sale cash advance on certain Lots 

It happens to us all at some stage - we don't quite budget our income as well as we should, and then find ourselves short of cash. There may still be payments due to come out of a bank account or a special occasion is around the corner. With a cash advance we can put all these worries to one side and make those necessary payments and special purchases. Advance payments can be made on gold, jewellery and silver, and up to 40% on other selected Lots. 

A pre-sale advance is a quick solution to a short term financial crisis.

House Clearance

Hot Line 07779 995117 
10.00am until 5.00pm on Monday to Saturday  

Clearing a property can be an exhausting and stressful experience. We can provide valuations for auction followed by a full house clearance. It can be surprising what items are saleable, and, having a valuer visit the premises to list the items of value allows family members and interested parties to make decisions about what items to sell or keep. Once items have been consigned for auction we are able to offer a full clearance service leaving the property empty, swept and hoovered and ready for Estate Agents, or the next occupants.
Please contact us for further information, advice or to make an appointment for a no obligation valuation.

We are open to receive goods, or collect delivered items on weekdays except Bank Holidays from 10.00am until 2.00pm.  

Sold for £1200
