Antiques, Collectables & Homewares Sale
Welcome to our first auction for 2021 @ Halifax Mill Auctioneers, we're located in Central Halifax on Arches Street, off Kings Cross Road and opposite the Playhouse, postcode HX1 2SY.
This first sale for us features somewhat of a reduced catalogue in size at around 200 lots, albeit one with some great featured lots, from a 19th Century Moreau Bronze Sculpture, to a bespoke French Barthelay 18ct Gold Ladies Diamond & Sapphire Bracelet Watch, with a great and varied range of collectables and ceramics in-between!
We will be adding additional lots to the initial upload all the way up until the morning of Wednesday 19th May.
Our buyer premium is 17.5% plus the VAT, so 21% in total, and after this 23rd May sale, our next auction will be on Sunday 13th June.
Winning bidders will be notified of their successful purchases by e-mail on the evening of 23rd May and payments can be made, either by cash-on-collection, debit card, or bank transfer, during the week following the sale. We require all payments by the close of business on Wednesday 26th May and for all items to either be collected in-person or confirmed for courier pick-up, by the close of business on Friday 28th May.
REGRETFULLY WE DO NOT ACCEPT PAYMENT BY CREDIT CARD UNDER ANY CIRCUMSTANCES.
Shipping is available for the majority of our smaller lots, including ceramics, but please do contact us in advance in order for the auctioneer to quote you a P&P cost before you commit to any bids.
If you have any questions about any of our catalogued lots then please do get in touch with us via Easylive's standard query process, many thanks for your interest and we look forward to hearing from you.

By registering for this auction and in particular bidding on any items advertised for sale within the Auctioneer's catalogue, the bidder is confirming that they have inspected the item or items in question in advance of the live auction's commencement, either through the photographs or written descriptions online, or by visiting the Auctioneer's premises to view in person.
Any pertinent queries or concerns about an item should be addressed to the Auctioneer in advance of any bid being placed, whether this be on the subject of the item itself, or shipping/collection if this is required.
All items listed for auction by Halifax Mill Auctioneers are sold as seen and it is the bidder's responsibility to ensure they are wholly satisfied with an item, whether this be its provenance, condition, weight or size, in advance of the sale's commencement and ultimately before any bids are placed.
Halifax Mill Auctioneers will not accept any retracted bids within the bidding process and are not responsible for any financial loss as a result of any bid being missed, any logistics issues within the sale itself, or any technical problems either in-situ at Halifax Mill, or as a result of problems with EasyLive's bidding platform. The Auctioneer will do its utmost to ensure that all bids are taken and a fair and competitive bidding platform is managed; however we are not responsible for any bidder's financial loss as a result of anything connected to the sale itself.
In advance of a sale's commencement, the auctioneer reserves the right to remove any item from the catalogue at the behest of a vendor - Halifax Mill Auctioneers act as agents for our vendors/sellers and are not responsible for any associated loss incurred through an item being removed from any sale. Any property or goods listed for sale within our auctions are solely the property of the vendors, until the winning bid has been taken, the hammer brought down, and ultimately a buyer payment has been made post-sale.
Winning buyers will be contacted within 24hrs of the sale's cessation, to be notified of their successful bids. Please ensure that where possible, payment is made within 72hrs of the sale date with collection arranged by the Friday of the following week.
Where a bidder is based outside of the UK & NI, please ensure that any relevant import/export shipping charges have been looked into in advance of bidding and/or courier costs have been considered.
If or where a bidder has to retract their winning bid or are unable to commit to their purchase, Halifax Mill Auctioneers will automatically add a ban to the bidder's EasyLive account. Furthermore and where appropriate, we also reserve the right to pursue the bidder's binding intention to purchase, at a legal level.
All offers of purchase placed through bidding within this auction are final and binding upon the bidder, and under no circumstances do we accept refunds or returns.
We accept cash-on-collection and VISA/Mastercard Debit card payments, but DO NOT ACCEPT CREDIT CARDS nor personal cheques.
Winning buyers must collect their items from our HX1 2SY premises within five working days of the sale, so by Friday at 5pm at the latest. Any failure to do so will result in storage charges being levied at a minimum of £5 per day, up to £20 per day for any larger pieces of furniture.
Shipping within the UK and Internationally can be arranged upon application from the winning buyer; however where this is required we would recommend that a bidder contact us in advance of the sale day to request a quote.
We use Royal Mail as our preferred shipping partner due to the risks of damage to items with some of the cheaper wholesale parcel couriers. On top of that weighted and sized RM postage cost, we will add a wrapping/shipping cost of our own, at a maximum of £20+VAT per hour.
Where any item requires shipping or postage, the responsibility for meeting those logistics sit wholly with the bidder. Halifax Mill Auctioneers are simply facilitating that need, whilst covering our costs - but will do our utmost to ensure that any shipping charges are as cost-effective as possible. Where shipping is required, we will quote you prior to any work being undertaken and only proceed once an agreement has been reached and advance payment received.
We do not currently have a preferred courier option in the Halifax area, but any winning bidders are more than welcome to arrange for their own courier to come and collect their goods. Any wrapping or boxing up of items ready for a courier collection, may be chargeable on the discretion of the Auctioneer.
