Yorkshire and The Humber
Hartleys Auctioneers and Valuers of Victoria Hall, Ilkley are a fourth generation family business established since 1906.
There is a sale of some kind at least once a week at Victoria Hall and all goods entered are automatically graded in order to place them in the sale which will produce the best price.
The weekly sales of general goods provide an excellent cross section of furniture, china, glass, small silver, jewellery and general equipment. In the first sale of every month we have a special collectors' section devoted to stamps, coins, cigarette cards, postcards and medals. In the last sale of every month we have a section devoted to vintage textiles and accessories.
Four or more times per year, the collective antique furniture and fine arts sales are held, with carefully catalogued items offered with the live internet bidding, generous international advertising, a high quality illustrated catalogue and an active mailing list of specialist dealers and collectors. The sale goods come from a multitude of sources, from single items entered for specific sales to house clearances dealt with on behalf of executors who require the practical expertise necessary to organise such an operation.
Other specialist sales include Toys and Dolls every Spring and Autumn with an illustrated catalogue, and Fine Wines & Whisky before Christmas.
While auction sales represent the major part of the business, Hartleys is also heavily involved in valuation work of every kind.
Valuations for sale or family division are carried out sympathetically and discreetly. Hartleys also provide valuations for probate in order that estates can be wound up without delay and with the minimum of duty payable.
Insurance valuations and inventories are also performed economically in order that not only are insurance premiums kept at a realistic level, but also so that should a claim have to be made in the future, the insurance company will be encouraged to pay out the appropriate amount without delay.
