New Toy department AND 8th November fine sale photos online

Dear Subscriber,

A quick note to inform you of new progress here at Chiswick Auctions.
From this week we have a new member of staff.  Tracie Vallis, who previously ran the toy department at Bonhams, is heading a new venture here at Chiswick.  The plan is to have toy sections in our fine sales, but also to have a twice-yearly (initially), specialist toy sale with the best items collected during the preceding months.  Tracie is collecting lots now and will be here regularly every Wednesday to value toys and discuss anything you might have to put into a sale.  The first 'big' sale will probably be in May, but there will be a big toy offering we hope at the beginning of January.  If you would like to enter something or would like to discuss things with Tracie, please email her at or come along any Wednesday.

Our 8th November sale is now online.  The lots can be viewed on our website or you can go to to view and bid online.  This being Asian week coming up, we have a large amount of Oriental items in the sale - from ceramics to bronzes and even jewellery.
