As a country whose people had travelled and spread across the world over the past 200 years, the United Kingdom can yield valuable souvenirs of its well travelled past. Over the past few years, pieces have emerged on these shores that have caught the attention of the top end of the market, generating bids of five and six figures. Most recently, an exceptionally rare Zulu prestige neckrest dating to the mid-19th century was found in a Scottish property, it was auctioned by Lyon & Turnbull and achieved £65,000 (including buyer's premium), a new record for the type.
Whether a single work of art or an entire collection, we provide complimentary valuations for auction and provide the most professional and prompt service to both buyers and sellers.
