Director Nicholas Rudge said: “We are thrilled to be able to return to what we do best and provide a valuable service to our many loyal customers.
“Obviously, there will be some changes to our procedures to maintain social distancing legislation but we are very much open for business.
“Thankfully, the vast majority of our sales have been available to follow online for some time with live video and remote bidding so this service will now take centre stage until we are able to welcome the public back fully for auctions to watch live and in-person.
“We have already heard from people who have used the lockdown to have a thorough clear out of their home so we would welcome anyone who would like an item valued for one of our forthcoming sales featuring silver, jewellery, toys and collectables as well as watches and clocks.”
