Vintage Costume, Textiles, Dolls, Teddy Bears & Samplers Auctioneers

Next Specialist Sale: Saturday 11 February 2017

Entries invited for all future sales.

These sales aim to promote a passion for textiles and fashion, and are filled with nostalgic lots, from platform heels to cherished teddy bears.
 
Buyers are attracted from across the UK and overseas, and we are happy to provide valuations of any item you may wish to sell.
 
The popular quarterly sales specialise in antique and vintage costume, shoes, handbags and accessories, white linen, quilts, paisley and other decorative shawls and wall hangings.
 
Sales also feature samplers and wool-work pictures, bisque, composition and fabric dolls dating from the 19th century, Sasha dolls, teddy bears and soft toys.
 
Previous sale highlights include selections from Castle Howard, a wonderful Quaker collection of costume and sewing accessories from an established County Durham family, and pieces from the costume department of the Richmond Operatic Society.

Over the course of 2016 Tennants will be auctioning a private collection of knitting sheaths or sticks, which has been formed by a couple from Hartlepool over their lifetime. Click here to read more.
