A Collection of L S Lowry Prints

Brian, a London based client, had four very desirable prints.  They were all by L S Lowry and included a copy of Going to the Match.

We sold all four to one collector for £25,000.  We personally collected the prints and delivered them to our buyer.

“I cannot speak highly enough of the way Mark conducts himself and his business. His professional approach and enthusiasm combined with natural charm is in my case only exceeded by his ability to get the job done.

Within an eight eight hour window the Lowry’s were valued, transported and sold…Whew! Leaving one very satisfied customer.”

A Wee Dram

 

Colin contacted us with a rare bottle of Macallan to sell.  Rather than choosing an auction house (who would have taken 45% of the sale total), we sold the bottle privately.

As a result, Colin took home an extra 35%!

“I found dealing with Mark a very professional experience. Previously I had dealt with auction houses in Glasgow. Within 24 hours Mark had valued my whisky and found a buyer. Excellent friendly service and I would recommend him without hesitation…I would use him again”

A Clear-Out 

We helped Jean and Bob sell a whole range of items they no longer had space for.  We sold all of their gold jewellery privately which earned them an extra 40% compared to auction.  The rest of their items were sold at three auctions.

We selected a specialist book auction to sell their autograph album.  Amongst others it contained Winston Churchill, Ernest Shakleton and Edward Elgar.  Estimated at £800-1200 it sold for £1,600

As total amateurs we are in awe of the many skills Mark has aquired and feel that he offers a unique service .

We would thoroughly recommend Mark Littler to any group or individual who, we are sure, would benefit from his experience

Selling a Treasured Collection

We helped Dave sell his treasured collection of football programmes.  Many were very rare so we decided an auction would be the best approach.  The programmes were sent to a saleroom where they were catalogued by a leading football programme expert.  Every lot sold over its estimate.

I was delighted with the outcome and would have no hesitation in using Mark again whilst also offering the highest recommendation of him as a totally trustworthy and professional individual who has immense knowledge on a wide range of antiques.

What is particularly impressive to a “layman” such as myself is his approachability and clarity of explanation of the likely value of personal items and his understanding of the attachment you often feel towards such possessions.”

A Probate Valuation

We helped David following the death of his mother.  We firstly provided a probate valuation and we then advised the family on how best to sell any items they no longer wanted.

“Following a recent death in the family Mark was fantastically helpful in assisting with the clearance and sale of items.

The results were better than anticipated and the salerooms that Mark selected for disposal did an excellent job”

Buried Treasure

This 15th-century medieval marriage ring was found by a metal detectorist in Yorkshire.  We were approached to give advice as to how best to sell the ring.  Deciding that the ring would carry a premium if it had not been exposed at auction, we began to search for a private buyer.  We eventually sold the ring (which was from circa 1430) to Mayfair jewellers Wartski for a five-figure sum.

The story made the national news and you can read more about the story by clicking the following images.
