"Country House sales are in the finest tradition of British auctioneering and are among the most fascinating and enjoyable events we do. They have great historical appeal and because of that I think they are very popular with the public. There is something different and a little bit magical about owning an object with a distinguished past and we always see a wide spread of buyers at our Country House sales. In the last six months we've sold contents from Marcus, Hensol and Killochan Castle, the Scottish home of Prinzessin Viola von Hohenzollern. Each sale had a wide selection of wonderful, interesting and sometimes simply quirky things spanning price ranges from a few pounds to many thousands. There really was something for everyone and well over 90% of the lots found new homes".
