Pro Auction are delighted to announce a live and webcast auction of Architectural Antiques, Salvage & Reclamation items to be held over two days on the 16th and 17th September 2016.
The past two decades have brought about an incredible resurgence in salvaged, up-cycled and church reclaimed architectural items; even for those outside of design and architectural industries, it appears that make-do and mend has been shifted to an entirely new level where old is in, and history and heritage are hot property for the on-trend residential or commercial building.
For many, the passion for reclaimed items is defined by their heritage and their innate ability to contrast in a world of mass produced furnishings. Yet all too often auction items are sadly lacking in any definitive history that is known about them (at least most of the time).
The Pro Auction sale, steeped in history and accompanied with a thousand tales features some 800 lots, which will be both live and webcast, on behalf of Antique Church Furnishings, will be making a mark amongst auctions by bringing to market a collection of items where tales may be told and tangible history can be viewed.
Further antiques and items to look forward to across the course of the two day auction will include elaborate carvings and decoration, stained glass cartoons and a good range of chapel chairs, oak and pine pews, oak and mahogany doors, prayer boards, bronze bells, plaster and wood statues, carved screens, lecterns, fonts and pulpits – all of which have gained significant attention already.
Mark Flynn of Pro Auction said “This sale has created quite the stir – which has perhaps been most notable for the array of professionals and private individuals; spanning from interior designers, to collectors and onto architects, it appears that the appetite for architectural salvage and church antiques is as insatiable as it’s ever been”.
With three decades of trading history behind them, this auction is brought to you by the reputable Antique Church Furnishings – the leading supplier of Antique Ecclesiastical Furnishings, furniture, fixtures and fittings the length and breadth of Britain.
The auction will be live at Antique Church Furnishings of Rivernook Farm, Walton-on-Thames KT12 2ET, will be both live and internet enabled on Friday 16th September 2016 at 10.00am and Saturday 17th September 2016 at 10.00am. Viewing will be available on Thursday 15th September and on each sale morning from 08.30am.
