Toovey’s have held auctions of many single-owner collections, both on the premises and at our salerooms. These have included the Little Thakeham House Sale, the Collection of the late Judge Coles Q.C. from Bolney Lodge, the Polly de Courcy-Ireland Treen Collection, the Lola Baxter Collection, the Colin Hartill Collection of Exhibition-related Items, the Beverly Battersby Collection and the Brunel-Hawes Archive. Toovey’s were also chosen for the sale of the Library Collection of the late W. Leslie Weller in 2014 and the Collection of the late Baroness Herries of Terregles in 2015. In 2016 the Maurice Stevens Collection of Postcards, Books and Ephemera and the Michael Gilkes Collection of Travel and Exploration Books both went under the hammer.
No-one knows a collection quite like the collector who spends a lifetime putting it together, so if you would like to introduce us to your collection and discuss its future, please do not hesitate to contact us.
Please provide good, clear photographs along with as many details about the item as you can including the maker or manufacturer, approximate age, any damage, how the item was acquired or any other interesting history.
