Tennants Auctioneers have built up an enviable reputation for orchestrating sales of Country House contents and private collections.
Each private collection, whether an entire estate, or the result of a lifelong passion for collecting, is a unique situation and requires individual attention in the administration, marketing and execution of sale.
Country House sales are scheduled throughout the year at the Auction Centre in Leyburn, but single vendor sales are prepared as and when necessary and can be held off-site.
The provenance of a collection and the history surrounding it is of the utmost importance to potential buyers. However, Tennants have held many private collection sales keeping the vendor and their estate entirely confidential, in line with the client’s wishes.
Examples of Country House and Private Collection sales proudly held in recent years include:
*A selection from the Castle Howard Vintage Costume & Textile Collection
*Aske Hall, Yorkshire
*The G. Kenneth Whitehead Deer Collection
*The Henrijean Big Game Trophy Collection, Belgium
*The Michael Denby Collection of Toys
*The attic contents of Renishaw Hall, Derbyshire
for our current sales programme.
