Our Fine Sale auctions offer a huge selection of antiques and other items, ranging from jewellery, watches and silver, to books, ceramics, artworks and vintage toys.

Lockdales' Fine Sale has become synonymous with auctioning some very fine examples of highly collectable watches, most recently a record-breaking sale of a rare Rolex Submariner wrist watch that achieved a hammer price of £230,000.

Philately is one of our key areas of expertise, and our Suffolk auctions regularly offer an impressive selection of stamps and postal items. Cigarette cards and trade cards attract interest from worldwide collectors and antique sporting programmes command strong interest among collectors in our regular Suffolk auctions.
