Welcome to Metheringham Auction Rooms
A long established auction house located just off of the B1188, around half way between Lincoln and Sleaford, in Lincolnshire holding weekly general sales every Monday evening, starting at 6pm (including Bank Holidays).
We also hold periodical catalogued sales as well as incorporating cars, antiques, collectables and certain specially instructed lots into our normal weekly sale. Viewing for general sales is held all day on Sundays, and from 10am until the start of the sale on Mondays (limited viewing may be held for Special sales and certain higher value lots. Please check for details).
We always hope to have, and have previously sold, furniture and smalls from the Georgian period through to 70's kitsch, from Victorian Aesthetic Movement to Arts and Crafts, Art Nouveau and Art Deco. Amongst many thousands of other items, we have sold White Star Line memorabilia, Boer War and other military collectables, sterling silver antiques, fine jewellery, original art works and grandfather or long case clocks etc. As one of the few auction houses in Lincolnshire to hold a fire arms licence you may also find active shot guns and live, collectable ammunition on offer in one of our periodical Special sales.
Lots offered in the general sale typically include everything from fine antiques to booters' boxes; we also offer new and pre-owned items: Jewellery, furniture, white goods, through to home, industrial, garden, electrical and office items.
An average general sale tends to include around 500 very varied lots which should include something for everyone.
We're happy to offer free advice for both buyers and sellers. Please don't hesitate to contact us with any questions.
Our sales are conducted by Mr. John Cox,
an independent auctioneer and valuer with over 18 years experience.
From April through to September
During the summer months we start the general auction from outside of the main sale room.
Lots offered outside generally include:
Plants and shrubs, larger garden tools, garden furniture and ornaments. Along with cycles, car trailers, building supplies and equipment and much more.
Should the weather take a turn for the worse we will restrict entries accepted on the day of the sale and offer any early entries from inside the sale room where possible.
Cars, vans, caravans and larger pieces of equipment are accepted for auction all year around, regardless of the weather.
These lots are normally available for viewing on the Sunday prior to the sale (if not, then from 10am on the day of the sale.) and are offered for auction at 7pm, from within the general sale.
