Antiques Auction of the Month

Scottish Works of Art & Whisky sale

17th August, Lyon & Turnbull

Scottish Works of Art & Whisky sale

Located in the heart of Edinburgh in a former church, Lyon & Turnbull is one of the UK’s leading auction houses and holds a Scottish Works of Art & Whisky sale every August, covering the 18th to the 20th centuries. Carefully curated by head of sale, Theodora Burrell, it presents around 300 lots of silver, furniture, ceramics and works of art from north of the border, and is always a highly anticipated event amongst collectors.

Key features include decorative Wemyss Ware pottery, historic Jacobite memorabilia, and fine silver from across Scotland, with estimates starting at around £200 going up to £20,000 or more for very sought-after pieces. ‘We offer our clients a unique opportunity to consign to and buy from a specialised Scottish auction,’ says Theodora. ‘The sale attracts vendors and buyers throughout the world, who support our belief that Scottish items sell best in Scotland.’

Highlights this year include the work of Alexander Ritchie, who made Celtic crafts on the Isle of Iona, a selection of charming Wemyss Ware pigs and a private collection of snuff mulls.
