Fashion and Textiles

Many of the fashion items that we receive for sale are consigned to the specialist fashion and design sales, there are however, still plenty of examples to find in our regular antiques and general sales throughout the year, particularly furs, handbags, and accessories such as top hats and walking canes. Designer items remain the more sought after pieces that the department deals with and designer names such as Louis Vuitton, Cartier, Gucci, Biba, Loewe, Chanel, Givenchy, Liberty and Hermes are keenly fought for. Under the Textiles section the department deals with all types of linen and lace, patchwork quilts, wall hangings, samplers and carpets and rugs.
