Toys and Models


Sworders have been providing specialist valuations for auction since 1782.

Our Toys and Models department conducts two specialist sales per year. The sales include die-cast models (including Dinky Toys and Corgi), tinplate boats by maker Märklin, model railways, toy soldiers, dolls, teddies, games and other collectable items.

Our specialists are on hand to talk you through the process of selling at auction step by step, offering a quick turnaround for your goods with high prices realised by marketing your consignments to prospective bidders based all around the world

We are currently welcoming entries of Toys and Models for inclusion in the Homes and Interiors sale on Tuesday 13 November 2018 - closing date Friday 5 November.

To find out more about our forthcoming sales or talk further about potential consignments, please do not hesitate to get in touch.

Free Valuations

The first step to selling your item at one of our auctions is to receive a free valuation from one of our specialists. Once you have received your estimate, and if you are happy with it, our staff will help you to consign your item to the next appropriate auction.

The easiest way to receive your estimate is to use our online valuation form here by providing photographs and as much detail as possible.

Alternatively you can post smaller items to us, via Special Delivery to:

Sworders Fine Art Auctioneers
Cambridge Road

Make sure you include contact details and any special notes about the item.

Sworders offer an open door policy every day, alternatively you can arrange an appointment by calling 01279 817778.

If your goods are too large to bring in for a valuation, or if you are looking to clear house contents, please contact us and we can arrange for one of our valuers to visit your home.
