The event will be focusing on a number of areas where the antiques market is currently booming including militaria, medals and coins; jewellery gold and silver; glassware and decorative and unusual items.

These and other easily-transported smaller antiques can be taken along for on-site assessment and valuations by the company.

People seeking an opinion on larger antiques, or general advice on selling antiques at auction, are invited to bring along images of their items for an initial assessment.

Recently featured on TV’s Flog It!, Silverwoods’ line up of experts include senior auctioneer Wilf Mould (pictured); auctioneer, valuer and jewellery and clock expert Kurt von Rugemer; glassware, ceramics and arts and crafts guru Jacquie Fairburn and James Thompson, the company’s expert in military antiques.

Recent antiques sales at Silverwoods have seen record prices achieved for vendors.

Wilf Mould said: “This is very much an opportunity to just come along to find out more about the history and value of an antique or collectable you might have in your house.

“We’re also here to give professional advice and guidance if you are thinking of selling antiques at auction on a no-obligation basis.
