Suffolk auction house Clarke and Simpson is extending its remit of specialist sales including art deco, antiques and fine art.
While the auctioneers will maintain its busy rural bygones programme – with a series of classic motorbikes going under the hammer on April 11 – two days later the genre changes to a 500-lot sale of studio pottery, 20th-century design and art deco.
Clarke and Simpson’s Hayden Foster said: “We have teamed up with the-saleroom.com to enable clients to bid from the comfort of their home or office via the internet.”
Clarke and Simpson regularly sells to buyers from as many as 25 different countries, he added. Clarke and Simpson bought the auction centre, which had traded as the Wickham Market sale yard from 1922, in 2013.
The Art Deco Sale on April 13 will include classic 20th-century pieces such as Troika pottery, a pair of BoConcept chairs with matching footstools, as well as 1970s G-plan, and Ercol.
