Christmas & New Year Opening Times

We will be closed fron Friday 22nd December at 5pm, and will re-open from 9am on Tuesday 2nd January.

 

Our first Sale of the year will be Antiques & Interiors in Saleroom 3 on Monday 8th January at 10.30am.

 

Followed by our now fortnightly Country Sale on Monday 15th starting at 10.30am.

 

We would like to take this opportunity to wish all our customers a Merry Christmas and a very Happy New Year.

Forthcoming Auctions in 2018

From January 2018 our sales calendar will look a little different!

 

Our Weekly Country Sales are moving to fortnightly and will now alternate with our Antiques & Interiors Sales which continue with the same format but move to a new home in Saleroom 3 and will now start at 10.30am.

 

The Fine Sales will therefore be moving up to Saleroom 1 with auctions scheduled for March, July and November.

 

The Book Department will return to Saleroom 8 and have four Two-Day Books, Maps & Ephemera Auctions the first one being January 25th & 26th.

 

We will continue to hold specialist auctions such as the highly anticipated East Anglian Sale – Parts I & II, Ornithology Auction, and many more!

 

 

The 2018 Sales Calendar is available to view Here.

 

If you would like to book an appointment for consignment to any of our sales or have any queries please call 01263 733195

 

Alternatively you can email us at salerooms@keysauctions.co.uk

Pictures & Prints Sale 8th December

Please note that the above sale has been postponed, this auction will be re-scheduled for early 2018.
Please accept our apologies for any inconvenience this may cause, and we will keep you updated as soon as possible.

Postage and Packing Update

Keys Fine Art Auctioneers do not provide an in-house postage & packing service

We can however recommend  the following professional shippers.

Mailboxes – 37 St. Andrews Street, Norwich, Norfolk, NR2 4TP. Tel: 01603 926420 or email info@mbenorwich.co.uk

Mailboxes operate independently of Keys Auctioneers so postage and packing will need to be organised and paid direct to their team.

Upon being paid, Mailboxes will send their team to Keys to collect the item and organised shipping.

A Picture Department Update

The new 2018 Sales Diary means that more pictures than ever before can go in to auction at Keys Auctioneers.

Our fortnightly Antiques and Interior Sales, held on Mondays from 10.30am in Sale Room 3, have a dedicated picture section where oils, watercolours and prints are available. Throughout the year, in addition to Antique and Interior Sales, are Specialist Sales – all including pictures. A Sporting and Taxidermy Sale, Ornithology Sale and East Anglian Art Sale all feature.

Such a thriving department needs pictures! So whether you have a picture to sell, or would like to buy a picture, please contact either Kate Banks or Kevin Lines on 01263 733795 for advice and information.

Condition Report Service

Keys Fine Art Auctioneers offer a Condition Report Service in advance of our Fine Art Sales and respectfully ask that requests are made at least 48 hours prior to the commencement of the Sale. Although we do our best to reply we regret that late requests are not guaranteed to be met due to the constraints of the sale.

Keys Fine Art Auctioneers take great care to ensure that any statements as to attribution, age, date, origin, provenance and condition are reliable and accurate but it should be noted that all such statements are skilled opinions prepared with due care, if provenance (written or historical fact) cannot be produced. However, Keys Fine Art Auctioneers do not guarantee that condition reports, whether included in the catalogue, or given at a later time, cover all aspects of an item(s) condition.
All clocks, watches and mechanical items are sold on behalf of vendors by Keys Fine Art Auctioneers strictly on an “As Found” basis.

No guarantee or warranty is issued or given in anyway, either written or verbal and therefore refunds will not be issued on the basis of the Lot not being “in working order”, “incomplete”, or “not in original condition”.

Keys Fine Art Auctioneers would respectfully ask that prospective buyers view Lots in person, wherever issues regarding condition are seen as important to them, satisfying themselves as to the condition, completeness and originality of any Lot on which they intend to bid.
