There is a strong demand for good quality musical instruments at auction. Whether your interest lies in pianos, violins, electric/acoustic guitars, vintage amplifiers, flutes or trumpets, Sworders sales are certain to cater to your needs.
Instruments and musical accessories of all categories are typically consigned to our fortnightly Homes and Interiors auctions, with higher value items entered for specialist sales including quarterly Fine Interiors and 20th Century Design sales held three times a year.
Our website is regularly updated with new catalogues and we offer a 'lot alert' service so that you can be notified via email when a specific instrument has become available for sale.
Notable past sale highlights include a 1935 Gibson ‘Nick Lucas Special’ acoustic guitar, sold for £12,900 in the Summer Country House Sale in June 2017, an early 19th century violin, stamped 'PERRY, DUBLIN', sold for £3,650 in the Anniversary Sale in June 2018 and a Martin Committee trumpet, sold for £1,500 in June 2017 (all prices quoted including premium).
Should you have items for valuation, our knowledgeable specialist team is on hand to answer all of your questions and guide you through the process of selling at auction step by step.
Peter Crofts was a big man in many senses of the word. Broad and above average height, with thick white hair and clear penetrating eyes, he cut an imposing figure. Above all, he was a big man in terms of his courage, spirit and determination to make the most of life.
We are delighted to introduce the latest talent to join our team - James Flower - who comes on board to oversee valuations and consignments from our Hertford Office.
