Have your say

Dee Atkinson and Harrison’s Antique and Fine Art Auction on the 13th September 2013 started with a tribute by partner John Atkinson to auctioneer Owen Nisbet who has retired after twenty five years at the saleroom and Owen responded with a short speech before commencing his final auction.

Almost every lot in the opening silver section was sold around or above the estimate with the highest price of £520 being paid for a Persian enamelled box which had been brought to a recent valuation day at Cottingham.
