The June Auction on Saturday 28th

The BPA team had a very busy week last week with the June auction being in the foresight. All the pianos were delivered into the auction rooms and set up by the very reliable Gilberts piano removers who we work closely with at each auction.

 The makes included Steinway, Bechstein, Bluthner, Schimmel, Yamaha, Kawai, Kemble, Chappell, Petrof, Young Chang, Marshall & Rose and many more.

The day was very successful with some very good prices realised on pianos, and some prices that still goes to prove that bargains are obtained in the auction room!

Lot No. 3 was a year 2000 Yamaha C3 with matching duet stool shown here in the middle of the picture. The instrument was in pristine condition and could be considered show room quality. When the hammer fell the piano reached £7,000.00

We caught a photo of Alex Borg on the admin team who was arranging & dealing with paperwork post auction, and as usual looking very smart.

 A run of uprights in the auction rooms; Kemble, Yamaha, Young Chang & Yamaha. A Bluthner can be seen in the far background and the cheek of another piano on the left…do you know what make? ( You can comment below)

It was nice to see new faces in the auction room as well as reliable regular customers who buy at each auction.

The next auction is in September and consignments are already on the way in so keep a keen eye on the website and on our Facebook.
