Peter Francis are a professionally qualified, long established company of Valuers and Auctioneers operating throughout Wales and the UK . Specialising in regular auction sales of Antiques, Fine Arts, and Collectors items, with general Effects and Chattels. Their online bidding systems attract buyers from across the UK and around the World.
As the top auction house in Wales, Peter Francis, have announced that they’ll be hosting their first ever specialist Vintage Fashion and Accessories auction in the New Year. As with their other specialist auctions it will be online only with bidding through the-saleroom.com.
They already have a wonderful range of entries from Victorian capes through to a 1950s Christian Dior cocktail dress; a large portion of which came from one consignment of beautiful vintage clothes and accessories from a single house with six stuffed wardrobes full of collectors’ pieces from the 1930s through to the 1980s. These items belonged to the vendor’s glamorous grandmother who travelled the world with her officer husband. Other special items such as an Edwardian Welsh costume were simply brought in on one of their free valuation days. They are planning to have a viewing for all lots before the auction commences but the dates for this and for the auction itself are not yet finalised, and will be announced on their website and social media once confirmed.
If you are interested in selling your vintage fashion pieces, there is still time to consign entries just contact Emma on 01267 233456.
