Mayfair Philatelic Auctions is based on the Albert Embankment, just a short walk from Vauxhall and Westminster stations.
Directed by Rick Warren and Tim Francis, who have many years experience in the trade and a vast knowledge of Philatelic trends and markets, Mayfair are uniquely placed to deal with both the trade and collectors alike.
Prior to Mayfair, Messrs Francis and Warren were the founders of 'Apex Philatelics Limited', a highly successful stamp auctioneering and retailing business, acquired by Noble Investments (UK) Plc and thereafter by Stanley Gibbons Group Plc.
Scholium Group PLC, an AIM listed public company specialising in rare books, works on paper and collectibles, approached the Apex directors regarding a new philatelic venture. Delighted at the thought of working together again and attracting both old and new Philatelists alike, Mayfair Philatelic rose.
The Directors first recruited Josh Barber formerly of Apex Philatelics Ltd as their Auction Manager, where he discovered his passion for describing, he then moved on to do so full-time. They have since appointed Sadie Medhurst-Griffiths, (a non-philatelist but budding enthusiast) to the position - meet her at Stampex and the Strand Stamp Fairs, she would love to hear your collecting history.
