Teddy Bears & Dolls

Since 2013, SAS have held regular stand alone Teddy Bear and Doll auctions.

These auctions always include a good mixture of antique and vintage dolls, dolls’ houses and their chattels, antique, vintage and collectable Teddy Bears and soft toys, puppets, rocking horses, Noah’s Arks, wood, composition and paper traditional toys and games, automata and much more.

In November 2017, the Teddy Bear and Doll department hit an all time high by realising over £100,000 under the hammer for their sale.

Experience and knowledge allows us to give you expert and comprehensive advice when selling. Prior to the auction a professional, colour printed catalogue is produced and publicised worldwide to ensure that your items reach the excellent prices they deserve.

Our consultants are available and eager to offer friendly and honest advice to any buyers with questions regarding items for sale, prior, during or post auction.

Any enquiries regarding buying or selling and for more information please contact our specialists Daniel Agnew, Hugo Marsh or Adrian Little on 01635 580595 or via our contact us page.
