Doll, Dolls' House, Teddy Bear and Toy Auctions
For many years Daniel Agnew has been advising on and holding bear and toy auctions. Daniel's last auction with Christie's was in 2007. Following on from the success of the three auctions held under the banner of The London Toy Auction (2009-2012), his next step has been to firmly establish similar teddy bear and toy auctions. As the auctions have grown it became more important to make sure that everyone involved received a great service.
In 2013 Daniel joined the well established toy auction house, Special Auction Services, where his ex-Christie's colleague Hugo Marsh had been running highly successful toy auctions for many years. This seemed a natural step forward.
We now hold two specialised doll, teddy bear and traditional toy auctions a year at the Special Auction Services saleroom, 81 Greenham Business Park, Newbury, RG19 6HW. To find out more please visit their website or request a catalogue call 01635 580595
